Seeing the world through different eyes is a must in the arts, be it in writing, composing music, creating a sculpture, or again snapping a photograph (as some may say!). Observed as is, this same world may not hold the attention of anyone for very long. The artist does this and it is the artist’s duty to communicate this representation to all. It is what will lead someone who cannot take the time to travel in his/her/their dreams to escape into another reality, a reality based on the the world that surrounds us, at least for a moment. Whether it be railroad tracks, a deserted highway, a doorway, the still surface of a lake, flowers, tables at a café terrace, or the distorted images of a cathedral in Great Britain, each shot here should bring the viewer to contemplate the site in a different way. It is meant to give another look, to make you slow down and consider many possibilities, in a way to feel reassured that this world also awaits you and is ready to reveal all of its treasures to you.
