Take a journey into paradise with Marco Eychenne’s latest exhibition, Photo Crash. Rainbow colours abound and melt into each other, as the characters in his pieces transform into what only could be called the human version of birds of paradise.

Constructed from hundreds of photographic fragments, Eychenne’s work sets out to challenge traditional notions of beauty, femininity, and also explores the celebrity lifestyle. Eychenne says of his work: ‘I’ve been looking to explore something unique in-between photography and fine arts, it took years of experimentation before I found my style. Sometimes I see myself like a painter who uses a camera to pick up the colour and the textures that he needs’.
