Instant Life by Florian Beaudenon

When you are alone, do you behave differently compared to when you are out in public? French photographer Florian Beaudenon explores this idea in the series Instant Life. The project offers a voyeuristic peek into the homes and lives of different men, women, and families, and invites viewers to inspect belongings and behaviors from a bird’s-eye-view.

Each setting reveals the everyday behavior that often takes place behind closed doors. Subjects are seen doing mundane things like trying on multiple pairs of shoes, taking a bath, or just reading a book, yet the activities offer a fascinating insight into each person’s character.

Through interesting perspective, Beaudenon creates an uneasy sensation that the subjects may look up at any moment and catch viewers peering in on the intimate scenes. The artist says, “We must enjoy of every moment. The Instant Life project was created after this idea. Photography intruding, not without a bit of voyeurism, on the life of unknown persons. They have agreed to share a hobby, a moment of intimacy that is important to them and in which everyone can recognize himself.”
