Dolorès Marat

Chromatic Disruption  

Her Minolta, then her Leica, always in hand, Dolorès Marat photographs what she experiences, what she feels: she projects visions springing out at the foot of a metro escalator, under the light of a red moon, or confronting an anthropomorphic tree. She photographs in haste, responding to her immediate instinct, and this rush is seen in her images. Neither reframed nor retouched, Dolorès Marat’s photographs nonetheless present a wide range of colors, often emerging from the city’s artificial lighting. She is a photographer of the night, illusion, dreams.

From four-color direct carbon printing (Fresson process) to pigment printing on artisanal Japanese paper by the SHL workshop in Arles, the materiality of the print lies at the heart of her practice.

This retrospective selection of unique prints is an invitation to immerse ourselves in timeless images, evanescent but persistent, like internal landscapes bathed in solitude.
