SOMME, film photography, 2019, sizes variable. Somme, is a place in France of a historic, gruesome battle. The conflict is noted for unnamed victors. Without clear winners, a site of indeterminacy offers a narrative for a series of visual metaphors into a process of understanding nature. By attuning my senses to an ontological memory, the histories I felt within my body while moving through the landscapes directed my attention to frame particular aspects of the forest. In a hypnogogic state, the elementals within nature invited attention to the conflicts exposed through life. As vivid image impressions, the photographs visualise a spectrum of feeling through landscape forms. Beauty and brutality, finite and unrelenting, pain and reprieve, memories are represented in visual chromatics as windows to relentless changes in the ways life, seasons, and societies, grow and fall.
