“As a child I could spend hours watching light play across a wall, or haloes of light on the ceiling, or lichen – in which I would try to trace a map, an island or a forest.“
Marine Lanier's (1981, France) signature atmospheric style has been constructed through experimentation with light, grain and colour tint. Drawing on a tradition of old master landscape photographers, Lanier uses an analogue view camera to explore themes of territory and domain. Having studied geography, literature and cinema, she completed a degree in Photography from the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie in Arles, in 2007. Since then, she has worked on a mixture of public commissions, teaching and personal research projects. Most notably, a collaboration with Drôme’s natural heritage department and with collective Les Climats. Her work is regularly exhibited in France and abroad.
