French photographer Jeremie Dru sees hidden patterns in his everyday surroundings. The artist captures odd and intriguing moments in architecture and nature with his medium-format camera, often using double-exposure and other analog methods to create surreal effects.
My photographic practice proposes to clarify possible and real places we inhabit. A way in which the camera can capture a personal interpretation of quantum physics. The principle of photography is to capture light during a time interval which leaves room for interpretation of the photographer and can distort reality while allowing the artist to be released from his subjectivity to create scenes that do not seem to exist.

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
