“The photographer must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveller who enters a strange country.” Bill Brandt
Travelling In A Strange Land is a creative collaboration with the highly acclaimed writer David Park. It is my artistic response to his upcoming novel of the same title, which will be published by Bloomsbury in March 2018. The works explore a reflective journey through the themes of familial love and loss.
“When we first discussed the possibility of working collaboratively it emerged that Bill Brandt was one of the significant influences on Sonya’s work so there was an early sense of synchronicity, helped by discovering a range of shared cultural influences…The ideal was that each art form would give to the other and in the fusing of the two we hoped that something new might emerge – I suppose in a way our own humble and tentative attempt to create the equivalent of a sacred carving.” David Park
It is intended that the final exhibition will appear in exhibition and print. Watch this space for updates.
