Beyond The Ordinary & Updated Landscape
BY GUILLAUME HEBERT
These series are a hybrid genre that combine pieces of modern landscapes with, in the background, landscapes that come from old and famous paintings. The name of this series is a notion that tells us about the changes created by urbanisation in our modern societies. These works invite us to compare the vision of an ancient painter with the vision of a modern photographer, in order to remodel our perception of the environment in an aesthetic dimension.
