Greetings from Mars


A critique of Julien Mauve’s series Greeting from Mars

Every year we run a Series Award through which we celebrate series of work from emerging photographers. The winner receives a solo exhibition and this year we’re collaborating with Galerie Intervalle in Paris – a global hub for photographic practice, hosting exhibitions, talks and events, as well as representing 10 of the most exciting emerging artists in the photographic sphere. The Series Award is open to all Life Framer Members.

In the lead up to the deadline for this year’s award (31 August 2019) we’re sharing a number of articles that explore the work of Galerie Intervalle’s represented artists…

All Life Framer members receive complimentary feedback on a series they submit to us. It’s meant as a general critique on the impact of the presented work, touching on aspects that can be readily evaluated in an online space such as overall impressions, originality, the quality of your artist statement, technical aptitude and image sequencing.

As a sample, here Rachel Segal Hamilton reviews the work of Julien Mauve and his series Greetings from Mars. Selected images are shown.

In 1492, Christopher Columbus discovered America. Less than 500 years later, it has become a common touristic destination for wealthy people from every part of the world. What remains of the Wild West has now been transformed into National Park where people can quietly enjoy breathtaking landscapes.
