Photo Opportunities, Corinne Vionnet
published by Kehrer Verlag in 2011; 20x24cm; 80 pages, 42 images; color.
Foreword by Madeline Yale.
We travel, we see a monument, we take a picture. Framing sites of mass tourism in our viewfinders, we create photographic souvenirs that are integral to the touristic experience. Conducting keyword searches of famed monuments in photo sharing web sites, Swiss /French artist Corinne Vionnet culled thousands of tourists’ snapshots for her series Photo Opportunities. Weaving together numerous photographic perspectives and experiences, the artist builds her own impressionistic interpretations – ethereal structures which float gently in a dream-like haze of blue sky.
At the core of Corinne Vionnet’s artistic practice are topographical themes, namely the interaction between nature and humankind.
