Red Landscape

The photographer characterizes his work as “magic realism”, combining ordinary-looking city landscapes with animals, shifting the focus to the collateral beauty of decay. Red Lanscapes is a series of unsettling images, which are gloomy and seem a little “off”. Du Floo’s characterization of “magic realism” therefore makes perfect sense, given that he first photographs ordinary objects and structures and then combines them into fairy tale-like images that tell a story on their own. The images are obviously manipulated, but it is not immediately clear what is “off” about them.
