Muriel Vega: Réflexion – Forest

Muriel Vega: Réflexion – Forest

The series “Reflection” has the intention to propose a particular conception of the image, a perception which reflects in part the Indians and especially of Shamans that integrate different dimensions of reality, in symbiosis with the plant and animal world. The artist questions the value of the image and feel close to their dreamlike vision of reality, beyond the physicalités and appearances. The photographer works with a 4×5 Chamonix N1 camera. This project was born of desire to pay tribute to the beauty, uniqueness and diversity of forests from the world. It is a statement of intent at the location of the forest and the people who live there. Art can help raise awareness and strengthen the relationship between reforestation and consumption mode. It is necessary to give more visibility to these initiatives and to create links between different disciplines: art, associations and sustainable development. The project concerns the forests the Amazon, the United States (Redwood), the Australia (Daintree), Indonesia (Sumatra), Japan (Yakushima), China (Shunan Bamboo), India (Forest Kareem), Madagascar (Masoala) and finally in the Congo basin (Kouilou region).

Muriel Vega – educated at Les Gobelins photography school in Paris Muriel Vega made a few portraits for the press and works as a graphic designer for advertising before devoting himself to art photography. For her photography is an exciting tool that it has a reflectivity of what constitutes the different strata of reality. It examines the possibilities and limits of the image, the view, chance, memory, symbol and its interpretation, the relationship with reality, the belief in general, poetic link, meaning that we give to things.
