Autumn mists – beyond the veil.


“Autumn is the season of the soul,” Friedrich Nietzsche wrote and indeed this is the time when we direct our attention to the inner world of our thoughts and emotions, preparing to look back at the year to take stock. And what a year 2020 has been! This beautiful series of still lifes is  the result of a collaboration between photographer Yvonne Dumas Milne Edwards and florist Jefferson Fouquet. “For our collaboration we tried to work on the sensuality of veils and the play of shadows,”  Yvonne explains. Follow us to this nostalgic and delicate space that inspires memoirs and daydreams. Enjoy!

Yvonne Dumas Milne Edwards is a Parisian who graduated from the Ecole des Gobelins in photography in 2020. She is fascinated by the processes of scientific study as well as the beauty of the natural world.

Jefferson Fouquet studied horticulture before becoming a florist. His artistic vocabulary is based on the deconstruction of classical codes. He creates radical effects by immersing flowers in urban universes and he is known for the sculptural qualities of his floral compositions.
