Broken Season

Edition of 2

'Broken Season' is a fragmented novel that through the combination of text and photography pronounces the expansive border between the environment we inhabit and our poetic construction of other landscapes. Through a semi-biographical narrative, the book unfolds underlying questions of how living in a controlled and encapsulated environment affects our idea and perception of the natural.

The glass as a symbol of modernity serves as the barrier between these two ‘landscapes’. From looking through the outside glass of the greenhouses into the imagined reality, to being inside and here, fully absorbed within this landscape.

The often contradictory relation between text and photographs description of imagined and real landscapes create a negotiation in-between the two that alludes to the ambiguous nature of how a dream of somewhere manifests itself.
