When I first saw this series by Maia Flore, so many questions popped into my head. What was her inspiration for the set? Was there a meaning behind the images? With all these questions, I reached out to Maia to see if we could find some answers…
Where are you from?
I’m 22 years old and from the south of France, where I grew up. Now, I live in Paris but often think about moving away.
What was your inspiration for Sleep Elevation?
My inspiration are things that I actually want to experience. I live my world vicariously though my photos.
What was your process like?
It took a lot of photo editing. I’ve thought about this idea for a couple of years. I was like, ‘OK, I have to do it now.’ I did not want to disconnect from the dream and never realize it. It wasn’t until last year, at the end of the school year, that I was able to recreate the pictures that were in my head.
