A photographic exhibition by Alexander James Hamilton
Abandoning his camera, Alexander James Hamilton has turned to the early photographic technique of the Photogram to create evocative and enigmatic images that explore the complexity and transience of life. Working within the landscape of The Maldives he has created striking compositions, retrieved from the shoreline and detritus collected by free diving the coral reefs. The Photograms are the direct result of exposing the image by the light of the moon and the setting sun; an evolving and unpredictable process that is as compelling in its visual language as it is in the final work of art.
‘There is a macabre dichotomy that the destructive pollution I collected by free diving these waters can create images so hauntingly beautiful.’ www.alexanderjameshamilton.com
