“Nature is the favourite subject of Maëlle Collin. Her immersion in woods and forests gives rise to almost hypnotic images which draw the eye to the depths of the image. Because, it is indeed the depth of the landscape that the photographer makes us feel using various methods: composition of perspective, blurred lines, duplication and vertical effects. It is for the spectator to no longer through preconceived categories, but to abandon himself to probing the depth of the image according to his own imagination. In the same way, the monumentality of certain prints creates an immersive relationship with the landscape, inviting spectators not only to see with their eyes but on the level of their entire body.”
