Recently my dad has got worse at locating where he’s parked his car in various supermarket car parks. Still in sound health, he blames it on the fact everything looks the same but different. While his explanation for his Saturday morning panic may be flawed, more and more we’ve become interested in having familiar elements in unfamiliar settings. Take Lauren Marsolier’s work for instance, her Transition series, completely blurs boundaries by creating artificial worlds through layering images taken at different times.

This seamless collage effect creates clean hyperreal images devoid of human interaction making us question everything contained in the landscape.The eggshell blue sky is the perfect backdrop for each image as it brings so much light and freshness to these static worlds. Mixed with the expanse of grey concrete throughout, they seem even more vast and desolate.
