The work of Misha de Ridder in Falaise, which consists of abstractions of the chalky cliff face in Normandy, France, harnesses the revelatory power of photography to capture the continuous metamorphosis of the cliffs. Once a celebrated holiday destination, where Monet is believed to have developed Impressionism, the area has become forgotten as it is encroached upon by the sea, which is gradually swallowing its surroundings.
