Colour photographs taken from a moving car explore the relationship between simultaneous stillness and movement. Photographed in the mountains that form the spine of Sicily, Italy, a region rich in human and mythic history, the images capture both a sense of movement and gentle meditation on the landscape. The works are metaphors for living a life balancing steadiness and change, the eternal and the ephemeral.
It is named Earth, because the earth is constantly spinning, though we don’t, as indivuals, see or feel this as a direct experience. Yet it is a phenomenon that occurs in the grander scheme of the natural world, one which actually allows us to exist and prosper.
The photographs were taken on a 50 year old Hasselblad and are C type analogue prints in limited editions.
