The paranoid Mr Schuhlmann and the invisible Mr Bolin…

Matthieu Lavanchy and Mr Schuhlmann
This is Mr Schuhlmann, the fictional star of a set of images by Swiss photographer Matthieu Lavanchy. Schuhlmann suffers from persecution mania and so takes bizarre steps to protect himself from imagined threats. Lavanchy’s series helped him become joint winner of the photography prize at this year’s Hyères Festival, along with fellow countryman Yann Gross.
