I came across these photographs on the booooooom.com website and they took my breath away. They have been superimposed to create a cross and are inspired by living in an isolated place. The isolation of some of the points along the Humber is something I enjoy experiencing. The stillness and quiet inspire a meditive viewpoint. The artist is concerned with responding to the environment and the idea of the sublime. I am also interested in capturing the power and beauty of dramatic light in a landscape and it’s emotional effect on the viewer.

“The cross photographs are taken during the first and the last light of the day, on the Winter Solstice. I began taking these photographs to attempt to capture my experience with sublimity, while living alone in the desert of the American Northwest in the year 2001.” Mary Mattingly
