My exhibition of photographs in November 2015, entitled “Five Continents: Images from the Margins,” was terrific! Sixty four pictures, on canvas and and in fine art framed prints, filled the beautiful Heliconian Hall, organized by continent.
An unconscious theme in my travels to Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas has been my attraction to the edges of things. I search out the remote places of countries and continents; the borders of homesteads and communities; the interface of elements – rock, plant, water, sky – and the space between species, especially people and animals. The pictures are not about societal or economic margins, or human sorrow, though I have devoted an academic career to understanding these. Rather, they are about the beauty to be found on the margins of place, time and mind, seen straight on, or from the corner of my eye. The full exhibition is to be displayed here, and a coffee-table book produced, in 2017.
