French photographer Florian Beaudenon's series Instant Life offers a voyeuristic peek into the homes and lives of different men, women, and families, inviting viewers to inspect their belongings and behaviors from a bird’s eye view. This reminds me of Wes Anderson' use of birds eye view in his films. I've always loved this perspective!

For some strange reason I've always loved voyeuristic work. You feel so strange, so detached as a viewer that it sometimes makes the subject more interesting. Like you are some celestial body looking over them
I like that all these people are faceless but we can still get a good sense of who they are
@Sjeanyoon But that's the thing. This is how the photographer sees them and portrays them, so we really don't get a good sense of who the person is. In reality, yeah, we see a little bit of their lives. But ambiguity is more fun, because we aren't directed as viewers to see a particular life, we are asked to think!
I just like the people swinging from the fingers of God and Adam in the first picture.
this is a cool way for a small glimpse into people's lives. I feel like my image would just look like a total mess!
