The windows of the soul
Yves mixes words, faces, and colors to deliver his powerful and direct vision.
The subjects depicted usually gaze at the viewer and invite the viewer to participate in the research.
The black and white faces are outlines with colored words.
I take pictures, I tell stories, I plant my colors in this tragic world, I try to turn on a light to come out of the shadows. I cry out for humanity, I preach reconciliation.
