The Land, the Water


Land and water collide. Edges are redrawn, laying one surface over another. The Land, the Water explores the ambiguous spaces found between those borders. These photographs are renderings of surface and movement, obscured by the rise and fall of water. The work looks at not just the play of light across surfaces but also at how space is viewed through layers of representation, shifting from a topographic to a more poetic reflection upon the relationship between land and water. This is a series of suggestions, a lyrical reframing of the complexities of water, negotiating different modes of reflection and penetration.
