Nagual - Orangutan's Spirit by French artist, Laurence Dugas-Fermon. Laminated photograph on aluminum number 1/7 copy. "Nagual is in Mesoamerican chamanism beliefs, a mythological being of dual nature, both human (or divine) and animal.
The nagual is a guardian spirit that can be a particular animal, concrete or abstract representative of an animal species.
Since my first steps into the picture as an actress and model while pursuing literary and artistic studies, I am today, artist, painter, poet, author and photographer, making books and exhibitions.
I look at photography as a quest for meaning. I try to find the unreal into the real, ether into matter, the invisible in the visible. Cross to the other side. Change the vision of the world through the image, to discover in the everyday world around us a dream world, poetic, leading to infinity.
Giving to see beyond appearances and a call to contemplation, I try to find meaning in our fast-paced world.
Restore hope, dream in blinded eyes. Restore vision to life."
