New Work | Navigator #1

Navigator | 2013


A sneak preview of my new project entitled Navigator.  More details to follow soon.

They died in their hundreds with no sign to mark where
Save the brass in the pocket of the entrepreneur
By landslide and rockblast they got buried so deep
That in death if not life they’ll have peace while they sleep.

Phil Gaston (1985)

RIP | Masahisa Fukase

I was very sad to learn today that Masahisa Fukase died on 9 June.  His book Karasu (Ravens) is my all time favourite photobook; shot in in 1976 in Hokkaido in the wake of his divorce, and published in 1986.  A panel of five experts convened by the British Journal of Photography, in 2010, selected Karasu as the best photobook published between 1986 and 2009. Fukase suffered traumatic brain injury from a fall in 1992, and remained in a coma until his death earlier this month.

To quote Sean O’Hagan:

Fukase’s images are grainy, dark and impressionistic. Often, he magnifies his negatives or overexposes them, aiming all the time for mood over technical refinement. He photographs flocks from a distance, and single birds that appear like black silhouettes against grey, wintry skies. They are captured in flight, blurred and ominous, and at rest, perching on telegraph wires, trees, fences and chimneys. Fusake photographs them alive and dead, and maps their shadows in harsh sunlight and their tracks in the snow.  Ultimately, though, it seems that Fukase’s 10-year pursuit of the ravens was a way of trying to make sense of an altogether more personal emotional trauma… more here.

Magnum started the celebration early on Monday with this selection of tree images.

Indeed what is more lovely than a tree?
