#24 presents work by Ed Raket.
“Sun light rakes across a canyon wall. A stream of magma cuts its way through pyroclastic ash, while snow drifts come to rest in the folds of worn, barren hills. In these images of sublime nature, there is no sign of human culture that might give us a sense of place. Film stocks and apparent processes vary so wildly that they give us no clue to the era, either. Are these lost images from Roger Fenton’s series on the Crimean War?”
