French artist Paul Rousteau is known for his alchemical light and color mixing approach to photography. Seascapes is a series made by Rousteau while he was an artist in residence on a boat off the Coral Sea, Australia. Inspired by the infinite horizons around him, Rousteau retreated to the darkroom to invent his own mental topographies, reducing the landscape to its simplest constituents – water, air and light. Often saturated, interrupted or blurred, his photographs are series of playful experiments that navigate between figuration and abstraction, painting and digital art.

These constructed landscapes invite us to consider the point at which the human imagination interacts with the landscape – how fantasies of distance, displacement and distant places are projected onto the horizon. Standing somewhere between vision, imagination, and a surreal, submerged reality, Rousteau extends this fiction with globetrotting captions and innovative design that invites readers to pluck and reclaim seascapes.
