Seeking Stillness

photographs by Olivier Du Tré

tagged: landscapes, regional, pictorials
Description

Olivier Du Tré's first book of photography is a profound and haunting portfolio of subtle, quiet and sometimes even sentimental glimpses of life and landscape through the lens of a remarkable artist.

 

This is the fourth book in RMB's series of original portfolios meant to expose readers to "new eyes" in contemporary photography. The book brings together a collection of black and white photographs chosen from multiple folios completed over seven years. Some images were made during Du Tré's extensive travels – to Newfoundland, the Yukon and Belgium – while the majority were made close to his home in Calgary, Alberta. The images presented here are not so much about place as they are about representing a feeling, a whisper, an impression, perhaps even existence itself.

 

Although most photographers have fully embraced the digital age, Du Tré persists in traditional photographic methods, having used film and a wooden 4x5 large-format camera to produce many of the images in this book.

 

Seeking Stillness explores what happens when the photographer opens himself up to the land that surrounds him, when he lets the wind and clouds roll over him.

About the Author

Olivier Du Tré is a Belgian-Canadian traditional fine-art landscape photographer. After graduating as a graphic designer in 1998, Du Tré found his passion after enrolling in a three-year photography program at KISP in Ghent, Belgium. During that time, Olivier immersed himself in film cameras, darkroom printing techniques and black and white photography, all of which continue to play a huge role in his work today. After seven years of travelling back and forth, he decided to make Canada his permanent home in 2009. Olivier lives in Calgary, Alberta.
