Photo manipulation and retouching have become art forms in and of themselves, as Lauren Marsolier's impressive portfolio shows. While some photographers and artists choose to rely more heavily on these particular programs, creating scenes that are spectacularly surreal, Lauren Marsolier has decided to use them as subtly as possible for effects that intuitively intrigue the mind instead of blatantly so.
Based in the United States, Lauren Marsolier "addresses dematerialization and the psychological experience in contrasting figures of substance and those things we simply imagine," as beautifully written by Ashlyn Elizabeth of Inquiringmind. Minimalist, atmospheric and finely fantastical, Lauren Marsolier's photography questions reality by playing with it. She often relies on clean-cut lines and perfect colors to portray the world as prim and proper, even though the viewers know the truth--making them reflect more on that truth.
