Adrien Parlange

In the book 'L' Enfant Chasseur' Adrien Parlange has created a book who's content changes when you put the profile of a child into the pictures. 

A child's profile printed in cerise on acetate is provided, with registration marks that you find and match in each illustration and like a jigsaw puzzle you piece together the child's imaginings during a walk.
Adrien Parlange uses minimalist Matisse cutout style illustrations and strange registration signs (circle, arrow, square, curve segment) to direct the reader to position the transparent head of the child.
In this way, the picture becomes animated the layered color changing the perception and revealing silhouettes of the shark, squirrel or fox.
