SOMME 2019

 

 

SOMME, film photography, 2019. Somme, is a place in France and a gruesome site of a battle with an undetermined. As a place of indeterminacy and unnamed victors, the series creates a visual essay toward understanding nature. By attuning the senses to ontological memory, histories felt in the body while moving through present day landscapes were made through a process of meditation. A hypnogogic state was achieved and several walks through the forest were made. The exposures were decided at peak sense experiences. As a vivid descriptions, the photographs visualise pain through poetic landscapes. Beauty and brutality, the finite and unrelenting, memories are represented in enchanting chroma as the relentless changes in the way life, seasons, and societies, build and fall.
