In the photographs of Thierry Suzan, there is a light so dazzling and profound that one can almost be completely absorbed – and always, too, there is the living. The photographer explores the contrasts – reality and imagination – that are at the heart not only of the work, but also of the artist himself.
Thierry Suzan builds a bridge between the present moment and the invisible world. He replaces the complexity of the relationship between art and nature with the fugitive aspects of the matter and offers the viewer a direct and intuitive passage to figurative expression.
While his images initially combine the beauties of nature with a vision inspired by discovery, his work on the environment quickly leads him to a dissolution of reality. Being under the influence of natural wonders encourages him to take a fresh look at the elements.
The visual experience reveals the tears in reality. Impressions are fleeting, forms are ephemeral and time remains eternal. In a play of light and shadow, abstract thought intermingles with the reflections of reality. The sublime is at work when the light dances its most beautiful choreography. From then on, the viewer interprets the photographs according to his own imagination.
Thierry Suzan’s work is certainly a manifesto on free will, a luminous journey towards the distant and towards oneself.
