« Photographer Valentin Fabre’s fantastical series ‘Fashion UFO’ tells the fictional story of two glamourous alien-girls who travelled from a mysterious planet to Earth’s countryside. Fabre stretches, blurs and over-exposes his photographs to communicate the other-worldly beings’ disillusionment with the polluted world they now find themselves living in. Whether posing hand on hip next to a grey Toyota, frolicking in a monstrous crinkled bin-bag, or lying amongst a dishevelled heap of plastic rubbish, Fabre highlights the juxtaposition between the ethereal innocence of the eccentrically styled aliens and the polluted state of the earth’s atmosphere. Sci-Fi films teach us from a young age to fear the existence of aliens, but Fabre’s series conveys the ironic truth that humans are the dangerous species. » : words by Ella Bardsley.
