Picture of The Day | Marianne Demmo

posted by Bridget on 29 June 2012

It was the colour that first struck me about Marianne Demmo's photographs.

Marianne's landscapes of the edge of north african cities have an eerie silence that is compounded by the muted colour. The absence of people, street furniture, any suggestion that the houses are inhabited begin to question ideas about reality. Can we really believe what we see, have the images been manipulated, is it a toy town?

The serenity of the the photographs is compelling and very beautiful, but in the end they are empty of emotion.
