I buy and hang unusual photos
Cyrus and Nicolas Cornut
Want to escape thanks to pretty unusual photos? Côté Maison invites you to dive into the universe of young photographers who escape from reality to take us elsewhere, at the doors of dreamlike, and sometimes surrealism.
To personalize and decorate your walls with taste, hang trendy and original photographs. How to hang them? Where to buy them? What are the works of the moment? House side enlighten you and gives you the keys to a successful wall decoration!
The possibilities of digital are endless. The photographer Julien Taylor uses and has fun. The lucky winner of the 2011 Nicolas Feuillatte Prize, who considers himself a "handyman of reality", is a fan of photomontage. From hundreds of shots taken in the same place, which he cut, glue and assemble, he recomposes a living scene, light, festive, colorful ... in photo. Thomas Rousset's approach is of a different nature.
His intriguing images are more of a surrealistic curiosity, with a particular attention to light and plastic beauty. Finally, like Cyrus Cornut, David Alouane has the taste of staging. A specialist in portraiture (both stars and anonymous), he is also passionate about the magical world of tales - from Donkey Skin to Little Red Riding Hood - which he reinterprets in natural settings.

How to hang his pictures on the walls?
Why not renew your interior decor by incorporating a touch of surrealism? Unhook your eternal framed prints and let yourself be tempted by an original creation in a very limited edition, numbered and signed, which will bring a touch of originality and fantasy to your apartment or your home.
If a work of Julien Taylor, by its large format and its multitude of animated skits is self-sufficient - on a large white wall, in a refined room -, compose a set with several photographs of David Alouane, for example, you will allow to enter fully into the singular universe of the artist.

The mysterious journey of Cyrus Cornut
In the series The Voyage of Alberstein, Cyrus Cornut (architect of formation) and his cousin Nicolas, director and gestaltist, put in scene an "absurd hero", a clown accompanied by a ball of 1.80 meter in diameter, a metaphor for a red nose, which is no longer just an accessory but a traveling companion, as unusual as it is congesting. Crossing different landscapes, the man in a gray suit wearing a hat questions our relationship to the world, to the other, to ourselves. An initiatory journey infinitely poetic.
