French photographer and Woman You Should Know, Cerise Doucede creates gravity defying photographs capturing a moment of time.

In her series Egarements and Quotidien, Cerise shows her subjects among the chaos of their own thoughts, lost in daydreams from their otherwise boring reality. Inspired by everyday materials and everyday life, the objects are arranged and suspended to create mesmerizing, brief moments of confusion that flirt between reality and fiction.

“Each portrait is a reflection of the desires, fears, obsessions, fantasies of the central person – and how they affect their imagination”- Cerise Doucede
