“These are dreamed images trying to recreate a momentary emotion that anyone can feel in front of nature’s beauty, a particular architectural shape, a landscape passing by or the silhouette of a beloved one.” – Fabienne Rivory
Rivory turns plain black and white images into perfectly accented dreamscapes, with just a dash of carefully placed paint. She has been making artwork that blends paint and photography since 2007, a process she compares to the exploration of memory versus reality.

“I collect photos of minimalist landscapes that I’ve taken throughout the years — deserted nature and rather common views, where there sometimes appears a silhouette or a shape against the skyline,” Riveny stated in an email to The Huffington Post. “These are landscapes that inspire me by their simplicity, their graphic strength and evocative power. “I like to work with painting because it is a living material, it brings randomness, spontaneity and vibrancy to raw photographs and adds a new dimension to my images that helps us to escape.”
