For ten years now, photographer Floriane de Lassée has been building a series in which vast cityscapes and the intimate lives of the people who inhabit them are brought together in provocative fusion. This work started from her own experience, when she was new to NYC and didn’t know many people Inside Views takes us from the collective to the intimate, from the infinitely large to the infinitely small: at first glance, sweeping urban landscapes bring us up against the impersonal face of the big city. But a closer look reveals the presence of residents, caught unawares as they move within the privacy of their intimate spaces.
With sophisticated stagings, Floriane de Lassée continued to explore the contradictions of our contemporary lives, more and more urban, between the need
to be one with the city and the dehumanization of a solitary anonymity, sometimes chosen, often imposed.
