FROZEN IN TIME, Switzerland
This series of delicately hand-coloured B&W pinhole photographs demonstrates the sense of immanence, sublime beauty and alienation that the perpetual landscape of the Swiss Alps provoked in the photographer. The narrative that evolves throughout her work is a personal one, a journey steeped in nostalgia; here memory and introspection create a web of mystery and illusion. Offset by the whitewashed landscape, luminescent figures appear in awkward and unexpected places. Daoust’s subjects are frozen in time, caught in a territory where dream and reality collide.
