The Forgotten Continent
“What a range of mood does the light offer from morning to night, from day to day from season to season and all through the years”
– Louis Kahn
In contrast to our current manufactured realities, and without the human scale of civilization, massive mountaintops feel almost eerily within reach, like a mirage in the desert – a great, white hallucination of ice and snow. At this specific time of year, sunsets and sunrises blend together as the daylight spans nearly 24 hours, slowing down ones sense of time, and allowing the observance of its passage in slow motion through the vast emptiness of the landscape.
Ultimately, it was these distortions of light and scale that became most important in the work. An investigation of the surreal, shape shifting landscape of epic proportion, each photograph exists as a visual manifestation of the profound impact the natural world has on perceptions of reality.
A small selection of this work was held at an exhibition at A+E Studios in summer of 2015.
