“Mimesis” 2012 – 2014 (Mimesis is a Greek word meaning imitation)
Mimesis is an adaptive imitation strategy. There is a major difference between mimesis and camouflage in terms of evolution: camouflage capability, involving colour in particular, can appear and develop very quickly in a species through the interplay of mutations and selection, but mimesis by contrast is a complex co-evolutionary mechanism involving three species: the model, the imitator and the dupe.
Technical note: This serie has been created without any special effects or retouching, but using techniques of analog photography, namely superimposition and photomontage.
