Capturing a sense of eerie desertion, 'Silent World' by Lucie and Simon is the Paris-based couple's newest collection of evocative photographs. Through the portrayal of high-traffic urban metropolises deprived of the constant crowd of people that inhabit them, Silent World by Lucie and Simone envisions a planet bereft of its inhabitants; the only evidence of human life exists in the odd strangler and the architecture left behind.
Opposite to the effect of portraying natural landscapes which appear serene and tranquil when unoccupied, this environment comes across as foreboding in the absence of people. What may have once been a luscious forest or rolling planes has now become a concrete jungle, and without the creators to inhabit that space, this world appears barren and deprived of life. Silent World by Lucie and Simon depicts that the natural habitat oh humanity is the one it has imposed upon itself.
