  • Frozen In Time, Switzerland

    This series of delicately hand-coloured B&W pinhole photographs demonstrate the sense of immanence, sublime beauty and alienation that the perpetual landscape of the Swiss Alps provoked in the photographer. The narrative that evolves throughout work is a personal one, a journey steep in nostalgia; here memory and introspection create a web of mystery and illusion. Offset by the whitewashed landscape, luminescent figures appear in awkward and unexpected places, Daoust’s subjects are frozen in time, caught in a territory where dream and reality collide.
