Claire Droppert // Mahabis Journal 

Claire Droppert’s intriguing photo series explores the tranquillity and absence of sound in the places that she visits. By photographing peaceful scenery with the lack of any human interaction, her images conjure up visions of a land where humans have never stepped foot.

Silence [ˈsaɪləns] 

1. the state or quality of being silent
2. the absence of sound or noise; stillness
3. refusal or failure to speak and communicate. 
4. a period of time without noise
5. oblivion or obscurity
 

This dictionary entry accompanies the series of images on Claire’s own website, perfectly describing the aesthetic of her work. Through forgotten landscapes, isolated plateaus and still waters, her photographs convey the visualisation of time stood still. There are no people, no noises, no distractions. The focus of the photographs is very much on the scenery.

The tones, colours and light used in the images helps to convey this message of silence. A predominant palette of blue and white appears calm and peaceful, the absence of bright colours creating a relaxing aesthetic. Likewise, the use of natural light helps to convey a soothing ambience.

Claire states that she chose to keep her images in a simplistic style to keep the focus on the features of her chosen destinations and the absence of any sort of noise, straying away from any sort of distraction to focus on a profound peacefulness. These images make you wonder where the people, nature and weather are. They are frozen moments in time, captured to preserve fleeting moments of silence.
