Floating Away by Maia Flore

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.

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.
