"The series Disparitions the artist examines architecture, people, landscape and their mutual interactions. Man appears as a flâneur in the layers of the image, randomly present or absent. The architectural complexes thus generated become compelling stage designs for human decoration in which the individual beings are imprisoned."
Helen Hirsch

Perfect light and extreme details with a rich range of colours and greys… Mathieu Bernard-Reymond’s images resemble a sculpture or a painted landscape. His empty spaces offer a reflection on space and time.

“An exhibition of photographs that reveal subtle, though poignant moments of interaction between
humans and their surroundings. From different points of the globe each artist reflects upon the
particularities of carefully selected places:  Bernard-Reymond reveals dream-like
Northern European tourist destinations. While these images originate from real places,he has created a heterogeneous space – a world that seems to exist as a fiction as much as it does a reality.” 
Mathieu Bernard-Reymond.
