By looking down I see up. By looking up I see down.

In this selection of unique work, the viewer is met by an almost intimate iconography of human existence at its most basic level. Resonating far beyond ordinary conventions of photographic representation, these powerful and beautiful images embrace the transitory and the unexpected.

Capturing invisible rays of light, ashes from human cremation, and the volatile reactions of primary elements on metal plates, melding aesthetic interests with those of natural science, this book offers readers a rare insight into the artist’s most recent explorations of exposure, fragility and change.
