When you are confronted with statistics such as 210,000 people a year are reported missing, it’s kind of hard to get your head around, and the last thing on your mind is probably where the person was last seen. Pauline Magnenat boasts an intensely tranquil and almost palpable photographic portfolio full of bright sunlight, dark forests and gritty beaches and family histories. She has also contributed work to the Novembre Magazine Blog.
One of her projects entitled Missing is a particularly intriguing. This series of photographs focuses on places where people who disappeared without ever being found dead or alive were seen for the last time. Sometimes, belongings were found later on – a shoe, a skateboard, a jacket – sometimes, there was nothing but the inexplicable absence, the unsolved disappearance.
