The realism of Valerie Meyer’s photography depends on emphasis. Her photos aspire to show what we don’t ordinarily see, because we seem to have little time to look at our surroundings. This is only confirmed by the bucolic subjects she focuses her lens on, which preserve their natural coloration.
Apres L'Orage Au Printemps shows a quiet landscape still earmarked by the greyness of a recently departed storm. One can see the most essential elements of the photo (the tree, the mountain, the clouds) double themselves in the lake, creating a kind of resonance, an echo of the harmony captured by the photo.
