In a world where photographs are taken and shared in an instant, Lauren Marsolier‘s images go through many stages and possibilities before finding their definitive form. Created from multiple photographs captured in a variety of locations, each composition is shaped slowly, over time, layer by layer, through trial and error. This approach allows the Los Angeles-based photographer to represent the world without showing a specific place, focusing instead on a mental experience.

Hers is a kind of perceptual photography, exploring what is sensed rather than the immediately visible. In a composite photograph, liberated from the single point of view of indexical representation, a new visual vocabulary can emerge. A subtle combination of multiple perspectives, lighting sources, and distances are used to produce disorientation in the viewer. The landscapes are ambivalent, familiar and yet not identifiable. The work probes our relationship to a globalising world, marked by the loss of its certainties and an overall sense of placelessness.
