Exhibition: Brooke Holm, Mineral Matter
23 November, 2017
An Exhibition at Modern Times
Holm delights audiences with her new series of Iceland’s river deltas, documenting their movement of minerals through streams and rivers leading out to sea.
Mineral Matter, the new photographic series by Brooke Holm, explores the power and fragility of nature through Iceland’s dynamic river deltas and seas. Documenting the movement of volcanic ash, sediment, and colorful minerals, which collect and flow with the tide of glacier water in a powerful display of nature’s complexity, Brooke delivers a compelling series of the landscape.
Photographed entirely from above, she captures recent human relics such as vehicle tracks and footsteps, which weave in and out of frame. “In this terribly beautiful yet forbidding landscape where the forces of nature are profound, the limits of humanity’s dominion over the environment are brought into question,” Brooke explains. Brooke’s passion for nature and her strong desire to investigate the relationship between humans and the environment is the driving force behind her evocative and significant photographic practice.
