Silent Worlds
by Olivier Mériel
Publisher's Description
French photographer Oliver Mériel (b. 1955) has practiced photography for over 26 years. His work focuses on landscapes with a taste for the obscure. The son of a chemist, he lives and works in France in the small seaside town of Saint Aubin-sur-Mer, just as his ancestors did before him. His photographs perfectly capture the feeling of history this region is steeped in. Mériel’s landscapes, while dark and moody, ultimately document his search for light. This light is reflected off the land and as surfaces act as mirrors, they exude a subtle glow that seeps into even the darkest corners. A human presence that is felt but not seen subtly leads us to explore and to contemplate the secrets of these magical places and the profound meaning of existence.
