June 4 to October 31, 2010 – Musee des Impressionismes, Giverny
Forty contemporary silver photographs seek to find the light of today through impressionistic landscapes of the past.
Like the impressionists in their time have left the workshop to regenerate in contact with nature, photographer Olivier Meriel crosses the landmarks of the coast of Normandy and the Seine. He takes his time and watches. He expects a certain correspondence between the time, place and his inner landscape.

Given the changing skies, the presence of nature in perpetual renewal, he wonders how to witness to the ephemeral. The day flees like a shadow said the sundial. Stay light, even since the dawn of time, the great subject of Olivier Meriel finally.
