afternoon at eastney beach (revisited)

2023 (2009)
Medium format photography, black & white

Just after graduation, I spent my very first artist residency at Art Space Portsmouth, where I regularly visited Eastney Beach. I could not get enough of the certain atmosphere there - the vegetation, sounds, solitude - a place I tried to capture in various ways, such as on medium format film. The accidental overlays, double exposures, details, waves, horizon lines and shifting lights were photographed during one afternoon towards evening. Now printed on a 4 m long strip of mounted paper, hang in a semi-circle, the image becomes a scenery again. I had it printed for the first time on the occasion of 'Einfach machen' (-'Just do it'), an afternoon of conversations on landscapes and coastal connections.
