My work deals with the mental process of transition, a particular phase when our parameters of perception shift; we suddenly don’t see ourselves, our environment, or our life the way we used to. We undergo what could be called a gestalt change. That transitional phase feels like being in a place we know but can’t quite identify.—Lauren Marsolier
Los Angeles-based photographer Lauren Marsolier creates visually arresting images and perfect compositions in her series Transitions. Upon closer look, you can’t help but wonder what is real and what is fictional. Marsolier creates her images digitally, assembling elements of photographs she’s made both in Europe and in the United States. Though she’s drawing on photographs of the physical world to create her images, they depict a psychological landscape, a mind as it undergoes change and upheaval.
