Ysabel LeMay’s work is a series of hyper-realistic digital portraits of nature. Each piece is assembled from hundreds of digitally manipulated photos.
LeMay on how nature has inspired her work:
It is here, there, all around, living, transforming, and it never ceases to enthrall and inspire me. I let her lead throughout the rhythm of the seasons. By means of my camera, I attempt to capture her subtleties and beauty in its purest form as I interpret to you her divinity as I sense it. A leaf may appear commonplace at first glance, but when our eyes linger over it, the mundane becomes something of wonder. The arrangement of colors, the shapes that define it and the veins that crisscross throughout become the personas. There is so much beauty in this world! We need only to take the time to surrender to the spectacle. My art is a tribute to Nature. It is an offering; A moment of contemplation.
