1960, Paris, France
Marc Harrold’s series of photos are taken at different places and times of the day, sometimes randomly to emphasize the interaction between light and shade or the way time affects the beauty of the moment. As such, predictable as well as unlikely encounters draw the invisible from the visible. His photos reflect the fickle nature of humans and objects. Signs wend their way through light and shadow. Aesthetics are important to the artist, as a way of depicting his thoughts and feelings. His work is not intended to convey any specific message, but rather shares emotions that are magnified by the experiences of the spectator.
“My photographs look at the impermanence of beings and things. Signs tracing their passage into light and shadow. I give weight to aesthetic principles that serve my purpose and my feeling.
The purpose of my photographic work is not to transmit an ordinary message but to share a thought, an emotion, enriched with the experience of the observer looking at my work.”
