Krystel Marois from Sherbrooke, Quebec, completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Concordia University in 2010 with a major in photography. While most of her work takes the form of portraiture, Marois’ photographic images of the sea capture Albert Einstein’s suggestion that “the most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.” Marois has a fascination with and attraction to the sea – especially to the water at night – finding it both mystical and fearful. She is interested in the secrets and stories that exist within the dark waters, hidden from most humans. With a cinematic approach, Marois creates narrative-based imagery to construct enigmatic scenes that allow the viewer to enter an emotional space when looking at her photographs. In Rose the pink sea animal is leaving the darkened frame, perhaps in fear, perhaps in pursuit.
