" Breath of The Fragrant City "
30th March - 19th May
Patrick de Mervelec creates a visually poetic and sensual essay conveying the uniquely volatile and enigmatic character of the “Mother City” - her landscapes and seascapes: windswept beaches, trees gnarled by the weather, ghostly boats emerging through the mist, bewitched by her cliff-lined coast as they sail to a safe port, navigating past the wrecks spread out round the coastline…
“BREATH OF THE FRAGRANT CITY” takes us through these compositions where the depth of perspective and harmony in contrasts transports us into the mystical realm of the photographer’s vision: intensely feminine and voluptuous; observing these images, we breathe in the infinite nuances and fragrances of the Atlantic and the rare essences which permeate the air of the surrounding mountains…we feel the curvaceous forms of her body, so provocative and seductive. This collection of photographs, curated from a series taken between 2010 and 2016, was inspired by Baudelaire’s poem Parfum Exotique (Exotic Perfume)* .
