This series of photographs are dark, seemingly abstract monochromatic works. They are night photographs in which the landscape is almost imperceptible. These works challenge the psychological and emotional investigation of the nothingness, serenity and tranquility associated with mortality. The photographs are shot during Full moon, using only natural light alluding to naturalism and life’s cycle in general. The dark landscape with its dominating textures displayed as a series of photographs, and juxtaposed with stark epitaphs related to cremations succinctly references the thematic of life and death. The visual rendering of the landscape is reduced to a minimum to become barely visible to further emphasize the notion of loss.
