Rémy Lidereau

I first discovered French photographer Rémy Lidereau's work in the monograph reGeneration: 50 Photographers of Tomorrow. His series Trompe-l’œil explores urban, suburban and rural landscapes in a seemingly conventional landscape context. However, much like other contemporary photographers working with landscape issues, Lidereau has subtly manipulated his images. These alterations create a tension between the natural reality that he has captured and the virtual reality that he has created.

I would also recommend looking through his series Corse which has a few really nice images.
