"Hope of Additional Light / Now We See Darkness"


"Peter Watkins’ photography can also be described as installation or performance. Neither the camera nor the development process are used as the principal means for his manipulations of light and colour dispersions; they are just witnesses. It is, rather, a direct manipulation of the landscape. Colour is laid directly onto the subject through projected light over the course of a visual event, which is then recorded, and removed and reproduced every time it is turned on or off. In this process, three sites of meaning are produced: the performance of its creation, the static past of the photograph and a living present. It provides both a direct and indirect engagement with the subject, and an honest, organic representational concept." (text: www.murmurart.com)

I really like this sequence, especially the last. Pat on the back for Peter Watkins.

As a side note, it would be good if you sorted it that people could follow the blog. That we we could bring our followers with us and give a boost to this showcase site (more power to your elbow!)
