SOMME 2019

SOMME, film photography, 2019. Somme, is a place in France and a gruesome battle site. As a place of indeterminacy, with unnamed victors, the series creates a visual essay into understanding nature processes, often considered at once predictable and surprising. By attuning my senses to an ontological memory through a meditation process, the histories I felt within my body while moving through present day landscapes directed my attention to frame the aspects of the forest. In a hypnogogic state, sense experiences invited each exposure. As a vivid descriptions, the photographs visualise pain through landscape. Beauty and brutality, finite and unrelenting, memories are represented in visual chroma as windows to relentless changes in the ways life, seasons, and societies, build and fall.
