Obscured draws attention to time and place. Presenting the same landscape at both day and night and through differing seasons, the first image shows day in winter while the second shows the inverse image at night, the camera recording what we cannot see with the naked eye. In both images the land is obscured; first by snow and then by darkness. The work is intended to draw attention to ideas of absence, whereby the unfolding of time and the reduction of colour and form begin to reveal a landscape of subtle details.
The images are reduced to simple tones of light and dark, accentuated by the flat light on the snow, and the decreasing of the light to near blackness. The images show what we can only see in parts, now presented as a continuum in which night and day are aligned to each other in a loop. The images are no longer about the observation of content but rather about the relationship of light and time, in which absence reveals details made visible by the camera.
