Robin Cerutti


Montreal-based photographer Robin Cerutti captures alluring underwater portraits in his series titled Mirrors. The images, photographed in vibrant, crystal-clear pools, were shot sideways. This simple rotation creates a strong visual impact; the water no longer floats above Cerutti’s models. Instead, it faces them directly, as if they’re about to walk through a surreal, liquid portal, towards another universe.

By capturing the moment, the instant, I reveal the optical properties of the water, that transform the matter and create new textures for my models. According to the light, to the water conditions and the chosen angle, my pictures allow the viewers to see surreal scenes, transformed by the properties of the water which act both on the environment and on the subject I photographed.”

Galerie MX has selected a dozen of these photographs, which will be exhibited from March 13 to 28.
