13 September to 16 November 2014, Fabrice Verrier : “Garden at night”

Lesser celandine

Lesser celandine

Like a herbalist, Fabrice Verrier reveals the tiniest anatomical details of plants, the plants we often glimpse by the roadside or in our gardens. Common plants, certainly, but plants whose names we know all too little…

Highlighting subjects so ordinary we do not notice them, illuminating daily banality – this is the main aim of the series “Nocturne Jardin”.

Unveiling the tiniest “anatomical” details of plants with a documentary approach, as in a herbarium; trying to give them a magical aspect without artifice and with minimal manipulation has led Fabrice Verrier to use an original photographic approach.

The special light of the camera combined with the possibilities of post-production software pull the plant out of the darkness and reveal it in its rawest state.

A film and animation production administrator, Fabrice Verrier is above all a self-taught photographer who has been developing his practice for many years.

During his childhood in Burgundy, one of his favourite playgrounds was a little garden he was lucky enough to be able to “cultivate”. Today, it is another garden that is “confronted” with the same intrusive but very common plants. So it is only natural that these plants were the first to reveal their true nature in this series of images entitled “Garden at night”.
