surrealistic world of Gabrielle de Montmollin's photography
can be likened to a fiction novel, which in some strange way
has become a reality in itself. Gabrielle's depictions of dolls
is one of the most elaborate concoctions of actual reality our
staff has ever seen at Profotos.
beneath the surface of Gabrielle's creations is an alternate
dimension of mysterious, and often haunting emotions and ideas.
While Gabrielle composes her images to evoke certain ideas and
thought patterns in her viewers' minds, her images open a world
of ideas to the viewer, which allows them to draw their own
conclusions about the content of her works. This subconscious
process within the viewer's mind is an incredible facet within
Gabrielle's photography, which is very difficult to duplicate.
mastery of Gabrielle's work is something many photographers
and artists strive to achieve. This level of conscious and unconscious
image creation is realized by very few artists - Gabrielle is
one of these artists whose creations have achieved this goal.
your mind roam freely as you review Gabrielle's portfolio -
your subconscious will open up to new realities and dimensions
of actual reality. The realm of philosophical and theoretical
ideas is yours for the taking...
