Born in New York in 1957, raised in Maryland, Terri Weifenbach exhibited for the first time in 1979 in a group exhibition, and solo in 1991. She is the author of more than thirteen books, often in limited editions, very sought after collectors. His work has integrated many prestigious collections such as collections Hermès, Sir Elton John Photography Collection, Museum Ludwig, Koln, Germany, Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, Ca or the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, Az.

Her work is totally atypical: she only photographs fragments of nature - trees, flowers and sometimes insects - sublimated by a skilful play between the net and the blurry. In Deauville, the artist focused his gaze on Calouste Gulbenkian park, on the municipal greenhouses, private gardens and the floral decorations that dot the city. A look at the city in bloom where the details are very important. Beyond the forms, Terri immerses us in the landscape and gives us to feel the atmosphere which emerges from it, it remains only to imagine the scents.
