The Cave is An Eye, 2021-2022

Following Pietra di Luce, and further research into the ideas proposed by Gaston Bachelard’s Earth and Reveries of Repose, The Cave is An Eye is based on the position that it is in the depths of the earth, in the cave, that we see most clearly. The full series contains more than 36 works made through dense layers of stone in the chemical dark room, resulting in unique photographic imprints documenting the absorption of light through geological layers of earth.
