Surreal Illustrations That Capture The Magic Of Old Paris

These floating buildings are a poetic tribute to the world of old Paris as written about by artist and writers. For French photographer Laurent Chéhère, these images are a colorful tribute to her favorite neighborhoods and her home.

The series is called Flying Houses and features typical Parisian buildings with one to two subjects trapped inside. By removing the buildings from their brick and motor foundations, Chéhère sets them loose to tell their multicultural stories.

Viewers are invited to watch as apartment buildings, hotels, and bars float off into space with their inhabitants. We can peek into the windows or watch dreamers lounging on the rooftops.

Chéhère begins her work process with a preliminary sketch. Once she knows what will be in the final piece, she photographs dozens of elements to bring into her image via Photoshop.

After the image is complete, it's up to the viewers to tell the story they see.
