Profotos Staff Evaluation:
The surrealistic world of Gabrielle de Montmollin's photography can be likened to a fiction novel, which in some strange way has become a reality in itself. Gabrielle's depictions of dolls is one of the most elaborate concoctions of actual reality our staff has ever seen at Profotos.
Lying beneath the surface of Gabrielle's creations is an alternate dimension of mysterious, and often haunting emotions and ideas. While Gabrielle composes her images to evoke certain ideas and thought patterns in her viewers' minds, her images open a world of ideas to the viewer, which allows them to draw their own conclusions about the content of her works. This subconscious process within the viewer's mind is an incredible facet within Gabrielle's photography, which is very difficult to duplicate.
The mastery of Gabrielle's work is something many photographers and artists strive to achieve. This level of conscious and unconscious image creation is realized by very few artists - Gabrielle is one of these artists whose creations have achieved this goal.
Let your mind roam freely as you review Gabrielle's portfolio - your subconscious will open up to new realities and dimensions of actual reality. The realm of philosophical and theoretical ideas is yours for the taking…
