Flowered up! The best of Photo Basel – in pictures

Chantal Elisabeth Ariëns’ melancholic photographs bring together the strength of our human inner self with its graceful, fragile, physical exterior. The tactility of couture, voile and feathers in her world, inhabited by elegant women, sheds light on our emotional life. There we stand on the threshold between deed and dream in stillness, and desire. With her visual stories, Ariëns is able to depict movement and serenity in the same moment, transporting us to an in-between world where our soul, consciousness and dreams roam
