This striking series of photographs is the handiwork of French artist Noémie Goudal. A graduate of the Royal College of Art, Goudal splits her time between Paris and London, carrying out investigative work into photographs and films as “dialectical images”.

She challenges images as a whole and constructs landscape installations – “wherein close proximities of truth and fiction, real and imagined offer new perspectives into the photographic canvas.”

This particular series showcases concrete observatories, placed in abnormal locations. The sea acts as a mirror in some photographs, extending the original structure to become elongated. Other images use shadows to manipulate the original frame.

Goudal has a knack for turning the ordinary on its head. By taking an object from its natural surroundings and placing in a new context, she creates something completely unique and refreshing in its approach.

Noémie Goudal is represented by Edel Assanti in London and the Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire in Paris. To discover more, visit
