The artist

Daniel Metz lives in Grenoble, in the Rhône-Alpes region in France. It is therefore no accident that the mountain environment has become an important leitmotiv in his photography. Alongside his activity as a graphic designer and image professional, he has developed a passion for the 8th art, a passion that allows him to capture the beauty of the landscapes he encounters and to share his vision. He thus prefers to adopt the approach of an amateur photographer, in the best sense of the word, in order to express his own tastes, without the constraints of commissions or profitability. A fan of naturalism, above all he strives to create photos that are as faithful as possible to the reality he perceives, so that the spectator can experience the same pleasure and fascination he feels in the face of the harmony and grandeur of nature. His series on China is intended above all as a testament to a traditional past that is now dying out, owing to the major changes and booming development of modern China.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

In a perpetual quest for “pure light”, Grenoble-based artist Daniel Metz states “For me, it is more important than the subject itself.” In Venice, he seems to have found what he was looking for. The gondola, canals, sumptuous gothic palaces… in the heart of the City of the Doges, he captures the beauty of this unique place. Shrouded in mystery, the photographs of this series offer the audience the vision of a Venice that is as magical as it is romantic.
