DENIS ROUSSEL
from the Power of the Elements series

Denis Roussel obtained a diplome d'ingenieur (1999) in chemistry at the Ecole Nationale Superieure Chimie in Rennes, France. He earned his MFA in photography at The University of Iowa in 2004.

Within a subtle balance between human beings and their environment, Nature has the awesome power of regenerating itself. In the process, it sometimes transforms ordinary objects into works of art. I have been interested in collecting abandoned items and reproducing them in the form of large-scale photographs. Magnifying their characteristics allows me to reveal the textures and patterns that are the witnesses of the interactions between the elements (water, air and sun rays) with the materials.
