Dhervillers, Nicolas (1981)

The French photographer likes to combine large cinematic and sombre landscapes with human beings that seem to have nothing to do within them. And that is often the case as Nicolas Dhervillers borrows from paintings or images from Google, anonymous characters that he then settles within incoherent environments, thus providing them with a different life, a new journey. By doing so, he proposes a timeless narrative and unrecognizable surreal spaces that evoke cinema and art, a fabricated reality where humans seem terribly vulnerable and lonely. A melancholic metaphor of one’s existence in the contemporary world.
