Melisa Teo.

Melisa Teo, hailing from Singapore, regards her camera as a “third eye” – an eye guided by intuition, capable of capturing a reality that eludes the naked eye. It serves as a transmitter and translator of light’s messages, turning photography into a gateway to the realms of both the material and the spiritual. After a career in fine book publishing, she has been traveling the world since 2008 in pursuit of the sacred. The works she has created during her journeys in various spiritual worlds have been the subject of several books (Light From Within, The Light Beyond) and exhibitions (Eden, Dark Light). In recent years, her fascination with the relationship between humans and nature has led her to photograph not only shamans in the Siberian forests but also anonymous individuals in the gardens of Paris, her adopted city.

“Melisa’s tree photos reveal what the eye cannot fathom. Trees radiate. They are encircled by a glow. An aura envelops them. Sometimes it looks like diaphanous tulle, sometimes like a pulsating veil: ‘a vortex of energy,’ as Sylvain Tesson aptly puts it in his preface,” is what he writes about her work.

Sylvain Teson.

Born in 1972, Sylvain Tesson is a travel writer and author, known for works such as ‘Une vie à coucher dehors’ (Goncourt Prize for Short Stories), ‘Dans les forêts de Sibérie’ (Médicis Prize for Essay), and ‘Berezina’ (Hussards Prize, Page 112 Prize). A great lover of ascension and nature, he has joyfully and skillfully embraced the theme of treehouses.
