French photographer Christine Muraton’s series 'Inversed Metaphysics' features hauntingly beautiful portraits which evoke a sense of solitude and restlessness. Muraton states that the series is intended to address issues of transcendence, the search for truth, and the nature of consciousness.
Specializing in concept photography, Muraton describes her work as aiming to express “the esthetics of wanderings…physical, metaphysical and psychological.” With ‘Inversed Metaphysics’ Muraton says the title is meant to convey “a paradoxical state of mind”: “From problematic states of existence, sometimes obvious, sometimes more diffuse, emerge a questioning about the nature and reason of things, but rather than seeking…an answer, it is the understanding that it is the questioning itself, and not the comforting illusion of an answer, that matters. Once ignorance is embraced, everything can re-emerge in a new light.”
Muraton’s work has been featured in such publications as Vogue Italia, Alliterati Magazine and ArtTour International.
