Helyek

Szürreális valóságfotók tájakról, melyeknek létezését nem hinnénk

Benjamin Everett tudatosan olyan tájakat fotóz, amelyekről nem hinnénk, hogy itt a Földön léteznek, nem egy sci-fi film fantáziatermékei. Helyek, amelyeket ember helyett az elemek uralnak.

My usual photography process involves a lot of looking and thinking without a camera. I wander and wonder, then work towards some compromise between what the camera and I separately see. . Drone photography offers a fascinating change of pace; previsualization is a little more challenging, you try to imagine locations from the air, you wander google earth, you check airspace restrictions, and you take a chance, you go for it. Levels of uncertainty and discovery are much higher. It’s definitely more exciting. . I’d seen salt flats from the air before, both from airplane windows and in the images of others, so I knew they would be fun, but nothing quite prepared me for the abstract compositional candy-land they provide once you’re hanging out up there. .

Columbia River floodwaters surround a small tree in northern Oregon. As dusk settled I packed up my gear and waded back to the car. Parked nearby was an older gentleman watching the river and evening flow by. He looked keen for conversation so I waved and said hello. . Through a thick accent I learned he was a refuge from the Khmer Rouge and the Cambodian Killing Fields, he’d been living in the US ever since escaping capture. His story of creating a new life, of kids and grandkids was inspirational. . I haven’t been on social media a whole lot lately. This is partly because I’ve been busy working on a few projects (still in progress), and partly because I’ve paused to allow some headspace and play with creative intent. How to make more meaningful work? . With these thoughts in mind, I was almost shy to share the images on the back of my camera with this man. He has lived so much intense conflict. Part of me wished I were doing more to directly impact global issues. Was a photo of a tree and a sunset trivial? . The answer was indirect through his smiles and laughter. Even as he described some of the crazy things he’d seen, he was quick to turn his attention back to some positive aspect within his story. . Maybe that’s why he survived. Perhaps looking for beauty and things to appreciate really is a radical approach. When so much is being fought against, and so many things shout for our attention to change, the most revolutionary thing to achieve is an unconditional focus, that no matter how crazy things may seem… we can always seek the good and reach towards it. Maybe that’s when the simplicity of a sunset is most powerful and needed. All the difference being a conscious choice to look that way. The light abides.

Kauai could use some love right now. If you are aware of the need, here are two quick links @WeLoveHanalei, and @Malama_Kauai. Go there, help, be awesome. . If this news is new, last weekend the islands north shore broke records with over two feet of rainfall, and the resulting floodwaters drove a path of carnage. Houses literally swept out to sea. I’m writing this from three thousand miles away, but can picture the floods impact on banana tree, palm shaded, tin roof shacks much like the one I lived in and adored. Devastating. To help rebuild, there are multiple fundraising options. The Hanalei-Haena Flooding Fund, is a GoFundMe that has collected $187,156 of $1.0M goal thus far. @WeLoveHanalei is auctioning items donated to benefit the cause, and @Malama_Kauai’s Facebook fundraiser page has multiple options, aside from general donation. Malama Kauai is a great organization that contributes much to the community year round. – Mahalo!

It was a fine clear morning. The wind was pushing, the board was steady, and light was the paddle. Two days and seventeen miles later, wind against, sun burning, and paddle heavy, lightness was all I felt.

My favorite maps are usually the ones I forgot to bring.
