L’Afrique c’est chic

Ingrid Baars‘ unique style of photo-manipulation merges photography, high-end fashion and traditional African sculpture. Her works are made entirely by her, from the preliminary model photo shoot through editing the final piece. Her work usually involve modifying and merging several images into one end product. She describes her work as a two dimensional visual sculpture. She uses a contrast between inanimate objects and their living, breathing counterparts.

L’Afrique c’est chic explores the relationship between aesthetics and emotion, flesh and seduction, while paying homage to African tribal art’s portrayal of the human body and face. Her digital sculptures are given a deeper level of impact through the addition of accessories from famous stylist such as Iris Van Herpen, Romain Brau and Jean Paul Gaultier.
