Alterity / Two
Guy Dickinson: Stations
210 x 253mm / 32 pages / Edition of 50
Alterity Two is a large format edition, dedicated to the work of English architect, photographer and poet Guy Dickinson.
The stations sequence presented here was created during a four-day circumnavigation of the three main islands of the Oileáin Árann, Ireland, in the summer of 2016. The predominantly limestone landscape presents a fascinating array of complexity in its geological detail. The relentless abrasive assault of the Atlantic and the elements has forged from the rock a vast library charting the passage of time, at a pace that is almost unfathomable - from huge deracinated boulders to fine pestled powder, from razor-sharp clint fringes to softly polished planes. This venerable outcrop presents itself in every conceivable format. It is anchored only in its greyness.
Through a forensic scouring and shifting of scale, the series prompts a geological colloquy between the flanking coastlines of Árainn and Inis Meáin.
