STOMP

The photographs in STOMP taken in Europe, India and Egypt since 2014, respond to the destruction of cultural identity and historical sites tracing back millennia, and today manifested by events from Bamiyan to Palmyra. STOMP explores themes of photographic portraiture and ‘the gaze’ in the context of destruction, questioning how we connect and identify with the other.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.
I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is
too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’ doesn’t make any sense.”

Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi – 13th century
