Compelled by popular forms of storytelling — comics, motion pictures, advertisements, his grandmother’s beloved photo romance stories — Cédric Roulliat taught himself photography to convey his staged tales of lonely, distressed women, and karmically-challenged gigolos. These artificially conceived scenes of desire and death compulsions are equally indebted to Hollywood’s golden age, the Grimm brothers, and Guy Bourdin.

Cédric also invites you to participate in funding his very first coffee table book, Souvenir de Plasirs Evanouis. Click on the title to see how his crowdfiunding project is going.
