Instant Life, a new series by French photographer Florian Beaudenon, offers up a sneaky glimpse inside the homes of strangers. As the camera hovers directly above, he captures intimate environmental portraits that showcase the everyday and often banal behavior that takes place behind closed doors.
Beaudenon takes on a voyeuristic approach as he spies in on these intimate moments. Uninterrupted, these women carry on with their personal hobbies and past times. From the obscure to the ubiquitous, activities range from reading and writing to naked cat cuddling. From this ariel perspective, uncommon in portraiture, we’re able to explore (and pass judgment) on the space they inhabit and the objects they surround themselves with.
