Olivier Ramonteu is a French photographer whose aesthetic places in the spectrum generated between two poles: the strange and the intimate. Ramonteu is an explorer of borders and boundaries, both physical, metaphysical and emotional. In his series Alter Ego, Ramonteu shows a dream plane, an area inhabited by a pair of twins, where both act as a mirror of the other. This intriguing series, steeped in mystery and an eerie twist, was developed from an approach, according to which, the photographer used real twins in some images, while in others, one of them is introduced by photomontage. He seeks to leave to the viewer’s interpretation the determination of which are true and which are an illusion. This series combines the use of traditional techniques with digital elements.
