The resulting images of dramatic contrasting color are intended to stand alone even as they suggest a range of visual and metaphoric associations. As the artist states, "The Horizons series is based on parts of the photographic film leaders, self-exposed by light while loading a camera. Light radiation acts directly onto the photosensitive material before any pictures are taken and without the intention of the photographer. The Horizons are created from discarded materials of the photochemical process. They are actual artist's appropriations. Each Horizon reveals a threshold, the clear limit between light and darkness, between matter and language." Aperture is pleased to offer this very special limited-edition photograph to its collecting audience. Each piece is framed as pictured with a cleat system for hanging.
