On the one side, the signifier, the forest. On the other side, the signified, the cathedral.
The romantic element metamorphoses into gothic pillars.
The references call upon the mystic atmosphere shared by the two periods. But here the beholder finds himself at eye level with the subject thus not under God or the nature
The process prohibits any further analogy: the act of photographing (mechanic and digital process) of a forest (natural process) managed by a human (human process) to finally developed and print via a computer (digital process)
The intention though of course does not play a role here, as a dialogue is created between the beholder and the picture itself.
Therefore, when the latter confronts one of the images, he perceives first the atmosphere and then deconstructs it before he rebuilds it according to his personal and unique relation.
