Ghislain and Marie David de Lossy modus operandi transcends the nature photographic genre and traditional techniques. Displaying 40 photographic images taken over the course of several trips throughout Europe encompassing Finland, Iceland and Spain, their images offer a unique and unusual outlook on the animal world and nature. The contemplative viewer is required to scan the landscape for the animal, as it is not readily apparent, regardless of its actual size.
Despite the incredible precision and clarity, there is something surreal about the natural environment shown in these photos.
This new approach to nature, both macro and microscopic, blurs the border between reality and fiction. It is between these two worlds that we find the certain poetic quality of their artwork. The telephoto effect breathes the viewer right into the middle of the landscape, turning us into image hunters. Lost in the vast wilderness we can, strangely enough, see the invisible. Rich colours add to the supernatural aspect of the setting and excite our imagination. Nature thus sublimaged seems to harbour unexpected guests : elves and fairies, ready to colonise the banks of the lead-coloured lake.
