Out of context, Pauline Magnenat’s photos in her series entitled Missing are quite calm and beautiful. It’s only when you realize that these are photographs of places where people have gone missing do the photos begin to haunt your body and give you goosebumps. There’s something about these that are unnerving, and rightly so, because while some people go missing and are found once again, these locations here show the places where people have gone missing and never been seen again (nor any body recovered).
