Karl Felix, photographer and creative director born in Germany, works at the intersection of fashion and fine art. His work is informed by his studies of social structure, digital innovations and the rise of surveillance, which contrasts with his devotion to nature.

The projects take place at an artificial setting, where interactions between groups and fictional characters arise, as well as attempting to disrupt heteronormative ideals outside the art and fashion industries.

CityTour is an ode to the French tourism culture and the obsession with the city of Love. School trips, the ‘I <3 Paris’ consumer behavior and the voyeuristic camp of touring has been a huge inspiration for this project. Marissa Baklayan and Karl Felix created characters that de-contextualize our ideas of travel through fantasy.

A retrospective of the first arrival to Paris with your French class, the hang-over mornings and sexy nights in public parks. A controversial moment of joy and the need to transcend the ideal of the presented masses.
