These forced-perspective photographs by Laurent Laveder remind me of children’s picture storybooks: seemingly simple and whimsical, but carefully orchestrated so that each tiny element matters, helping create a seamless narrative.
Just a wheelbarrow full of moon. I like to imagine
that when he tips it forward, out spill the stars.
Wouldn’t it be fun to amble along at dusk
with a balloon glowing softly like a firefly?
It’s a “croissant moon” breakfast!
A ladder to the porthole of heaven.
