This is a showcase of the amazing photographs taken by Alex & Cocco, a collection of photographs that re-present the everyday confinements, re-proposing the ordinary, the displaced and the the overlooked.
“Distil Ennui” Definition:
To extract the essence and beauty of life to appease world weariness.
All of the images below and on there portfolio site distilennui.com are always presented ‘as shot‘ without cropping or post production of any kind. This allows the images to flow and connect to each other with a sense of grace and simplicity. Rather than appearing precious and overly concerned with aesthetics, the images more evidently describe a life and eye made behind the camera.
With many of the images, subjects appear floating in a black space that neither interferes nor disrupts the subject matter. In fact the collaboration within this void offers a serene and dreamlike sensation with images broken into positive and negative spaces. Images that do suggest cultural and social issues do so in a way that is not forceful or aggressive, but more open to you, the viewers own interpretation.
That is the feeling they have when shooting photographs.
The images below are merely the tip of the iceberg, vist there site to view more beautiful photography: distilennui.com.
