From photographer Emma Picq and stylist Vanessa Deutsch, the series Modern Life reflects a physical sensation and a state of mind under the influence of current waves, transmissions and overused telecommunications in contemporary Western societies.

The story aims to visualise mental shock waves; with a strong sense of performance, it puts together various portraits of contemporary experience, allowing the body to feel the pressures of modern life running ahead of modernity. With their eerie, cinematic shots, the team creates spaces that nourish individuality and keep the subject in the foreground, yet maintain a sense of captivity and struggle.
