Media Lounge

A book by Edgar Martins
Dramatic images of “un-photographable” locations—from dark beaches and burning forests, to highway barriers and airport runways—captivate in Edgar Martins’s recent collection. Without any digital manipulation, Martins manages to make the familiar appear alien, re-introducing a standard public beach scene as an absurdly artful moonscape, or forcing viewers to admit the reluctant awe conjured by a glittering, hellish fire. Images of ice and rock formations in Iceland use the earth’s horizon as an anchor—a constant line reminding the viewer that these ghostly, otherworldly landscapes are, ultimately, portraits of home.1506601 --D.W.
