All the photos and editing by me.

I find it quite interesting to look at how people influence each other. It is very common to see people living together for a long time to have similar ideas, similar views and thoughts about the world. When I was a child, I remember identifying myself to various models (my parents, cartoon heroes, rock stars, etc.) and trying to act like them in some way. Mimicry is a learning strategy that lots of life forms follow, to a certain point.

But then, what part of us is really us, and what part comes from the relations we have or had? Is there something like a "core" behavior? Or can we only be defined by the sum of our experiences? Or is it simply that we do we get along mostly with people that are already similar to us?

I tried to translate those questions into a little image: here the body starts to bend itself, to look like the lollipop. Or was it already like that, and the man is fascinated by his new "friend"? You choose!

This is vaguely reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.

As usual, extremely creative and spot on!
Visually mind blowing.
Let me know when international recognition  finally happens! (or has it already)?
Nice!
