the Ephemeral Photography of Muriel Najean de Bevere

Muriel Najean de Bevere's exquisite photographs and particularly those of Pere Lachaise Cemetery are in the tradition of Kyudo.

Kyudo is a form of moving meditation in which the focus of practice is on “clearing the mind” rather than on marksmanship. The target becomes a mirror reflecting the quality of one’s mind at the moment of the arrow’s release.

With the lens of a camera, Muriel de Bevere
captures the sleeping solitude, tranquillity and otherworldly purity of the most famous cemetery in the world. With mirror like precision her photographs reflect what can only be called, drop dead beauty.
