In search of bodies in a trance, in a state of complete surrender to dance and the simple pleasure of being, I sought to act as an invisible hunter. For that, I transformed a digital camera so that it is only sensitive to the wavelength corresponding to the infrared. I use lighting of the same type, acting as a flash invisible to the human eye. The subjects reveal themselves in moments of abandonment, far from any staging, and offer the viewer portraits of self-forgetfulness.
