Sylvain Norget’s The Naked Rabbit transformed from a self-imposed cure of leporiphobia into a very serious art photography project. Dressed in (almost) nothing but a rabbit mask, the model-turned-photographer modeled in front of his own camera in the most unexpected places and poses, and shot hundreds of photos of himself. The result is a large collection of self portraits. Some sensuous, some sexual, some intimate and some even scary. But all of them with the rabbit mask integrated. Sylvain fought his fear and by doing so he created a unique series of portraits, now beautifully assembled in a book publication, entitled TNRP The Naked Rabbit Project. A book that seems to have become Sylvain Norget's rabbit's foot.
But Sylvain Norget is more than the Naked Rabbit. At 34 years he can look back at a successful career in modeling, dancing and interior decorating. Skills and talents he now masterly combines in his unique self portraits, as well as in the work he does with others. Active in both fashion and artistic photography, Sylvain offers his services for portraiture and portfolio work. About his photography Sylvain says: "My work is simple. I have no messages. I just love doing pictures. I love people; I love faces. My pictures don’t tell a story – you can imagine one for sure, but it’s not my point. I just want to photograph…" And photographing is what he does. With style and with class. –B-
