Artist Blog

Every week an artist whose single image was published by Der Greif is given a platform in which to blog about contemporary photography.

Lauren Marsolier

Apr 15, 2017 - Louis de Belle

Lauren Marsolier deconstructs and reassembles photographs. I often find myself looking at these beautiful fictive places, thinking if such idle set ups might really exist somewhere. There’s a certain fascination about her usage of form, colour and composition, with reminiscences of metaphysical painters De Chirico and Carrà.

In 2015 Marsollier was included in a panel discussion at the Tate Modern in London discussing contemporary landscape photography, along with fellow artists Thomas Struth, Penelope Umbrico, Massimo Vitali and Mishka Henner.
