Chrystel Lebas: Time in Space
Edited by Chrystel Lebas
Distributed By Trans-Atlantic Publications
98 Pages, Illustrated. 11 3/4 x 8 1/4"
Chrystel Lebas graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1997. Her work appears in several international collections and she has received great acknowledgement by the UK press after her exhibition " Between Dog and Wolf". This new publication brings together works made between 2003-2006; the photographs were taken in forests in France, Germany, Spain and Japan during the hour of twilight.
The forest is a space of immensity which echoes our childhood memories, through fairy-tale or play. "Walking to the forest of my childhood in France, after many years, I remembered when we used to build a hut, and slowly the light would disappear, and darkness would surround us. The excitement of being inside this small shelter, protected by the large trees, overturned our fears, and instead we felt protected."
