13 Queens by Alex and Felix

Rulers over surreal worlds.

“There are unfamiliar worlds waiting to be discovered, filled with very well known objects of our everyday life yet staged in an unexpected way beyond recognition, draped with exuberant costumes of various shapes and colours. The insignia of power, the signs of their dreamland, hang from their bodies, stick to their skin and surround the sphere of their heads. These queens have truly incorporated their sensual empire. Every single one a proud queen, patron saint of ornaments, ruler over an empire of symbols, inviting the viewer to lose oneself.” These are the exact words that describe Alex and Felix‘s photography project 13 Queens that is taken from their website.

Alex Gertschen and Felix Meier are Swiss photographers creating photographs in an imaginative world, often absurd and surreal. The models, objects and props are carefully constructed before being to give a magical look. Each queen represent different personalities and stories.
