If you know me, you know that I have a strong distaste for balloons. It’s not anything close to Globophobia (yes, there is a label for a phobia of balloons) but let’s just say the thought of thousands of balloons descending upon me or invading an enclosed space makes me very uncomfortable. However, there’s something about alluring and intriguing about Charles Pétillon‘s photographs of his balloon installations. In his Invasions series, the Paris-based photographer aims to use balloons to alter the way people perceive familiar things and spaces. Well, perceptions are surely altered as I truly am able to see the beauty in his work.
