reference is a theatre poster of Therese Raquin (I guess) I left Laurent’s eyes intentionally hollow as the pictures depicts the very beginning of the story and as a consequence Laurent’s self-indulgent character at the beginning,while Therese’s are closed,which I find very suitable to represent her passion…
Then the story begins…

The Double

the double.

inspired from Dostoyevsky’s great novel “the double”.Probabyly I’ve read it more than a decade ago,and still amazed by Dostoyevsky’s amazing portrayal of the character… Reference photo is :

Anyway,this is my interpretation (that great photo helped a lot) escapism from modern society and nostalgia towards past times in some darkest moments…
