Silent World


Based in France, Lucie and Simon travel the world photographing famous places with a neutral density filter that allows extra long exposures and causes moving objects like people and cars to be removed.

The resulting deserted spaces, normally milling with life, are quite unnerving.

    Neutral density filters my f*cking ars*.

    Lucie & Simon have chosen to usually leave just one person.

    And call it ‘art’.
