Going Away

PhotographerPeter Bennett
Entry Description

Going Away explores the coast as a ‘remembered place’, a place of escape and of imaginative departure from which we contemplate past time. This liminal landscape, where land meets sea, is rich in associations between what is fixed and boundless, stable and unstable, located and placeless. The faded look of the images alludes to the appearance of old photographs, which over time are bleached by too much light, dissolving away what is visible and reminding us that the medium of photography, celebrated for its ability to capture time, is itself impermanent.
