If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

Darren Almond: moonlight landscapes « Previous | |Next »
February 22, 2014

Darren Almond's series of “full moon” photographs consist of landscapes in far flung destinations that were taken at night, with a long exposure, using only the light of the full moon. Unlike, say, the seascapes of Hiroshi Sugimoto, in which the grey of the sea imperceptibly meets the grey of the sky in epically long exposures, Almond's landscapes have a deep, painterly tonal range.

Almond's Tasmania is one of dark forests, empty valleys and a single train track through deserted Tasmanian bush-land. It’s a world without people:

The rail tracks show how technology and industrialisation has altered nature as wilderness.
