Alexander Gustaf-Thompson

Glimmer, 2020


I’m interested in new ways of visualising and interacting with the landscape. In an age marked by human over-exploitation of the environment I want to question and redefine our relationship with landscape, especially how we define and perceive it through photography.

In Glimmer I’ve made photographs by shining light through semi-transparent wafers of the mineral muscovite onto light-sensitive chromogenic paper. The billion-year-old muscovite,

found in the rocks of southern Gothenburg, is reminiscent of photographic negatives – thin, silvery, and of varying transparency. The resulting cameraless photographs reveal the ancient and intricate patterns of the landscape from within.
