I photographed these crops in the summer, when the fields are a deeper green, or yellow with ripe wheat. After the harvest, interesting lines and shadows appear in the dry stubble. These images were created in the farmland that surrounds our small village, where we have lived for twelve years. The village is about 35 kms (22 miles) from central Paris and was once home to King Louis XIV’s falconers and falconry. When I open the digital file on my computer the image is invariably all white. The colours appear by a combination of adjustments to the exposure, contrast, highlights or shadows. The image is there, but hidden, just like a film photo that is revealed in a bath of developing chemicals. I do not alter or artificially enhance the original image.

I am not interested in illustrating my time. I see no point in adding to the plethora of largely negative images of our time’s tragedies. My relationship with photography, with the light, is the same as that of a painter with her paints and canvas. My work in photography and painting, is inspired by the great artists of the past and present, by the soft colours of Impressionism, the vibrant tones of Fauvism or the Colour Field painters Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still, and more recently the blurred paintings of Gerhard Richter and Uta Barth’s photographs. I search for naturally occurring colour and create a blurred image with my camera, using different techniques, devoid of reference, free from any direct associations. Through the editing process I can add or remove colour, tones, highlights or lowlights, just as I add or scrape away paint on a canvas. By making images that do not conform to our existing vocabulary of the photographic medium, I want viewers to reexamine their expectations of what a photograph can be. My art is a contemplative experience. I want the viewer to pause and question, instead of simply recognising the content of an image.
