These photographs were taken at U.S.S.R.’s nuclear test site, Semipalatinsk. Before each photograph was developed, thermonuclear strata was scattered on the negative, creating light spots.

David Benjamin Sherry’s series of monochromatic photographs of the American West drew inspiration from Group f/64 – a collective formed in 1932 including photographers Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Ruth Bernhard and other notables. While they scorned photo manipulation, Sherry manipulated his photography through a darkroom process to create a more colorful version of the West.

Southern Light Stations is an investigation into the way people viewed the skies before the telescope. The photographs presented are a range of sea- and sky-scapes that reveal enduring characteristics about our relationship with the natural world.

The eye is drawn to the imposing spheres, held aloft only by flimsy strings. Dwarfed by the dominance of the natural world, the photographs fill us both with wonder and the sobering reality of our vulnerability and insignificance.
