摄影师：布伦特•梅斯彻 Brent Meistre
Brent Meistre is a photographer based in Grahamstown, South Africa. He works mainly with traditional photographic processes (including hand colour printing) incorporated into bodies of work which also feature video, stop-frame animation and sound installations. In this context he uses the photographic and filmic to unravel and complicate the notion of the photograph being a document of historical fact, contra the medium's possibilities for suggesting the unsaid.
Sojourn is a photographic series of landscape images taken over a period of six years across Southern Africa. Much of his work investigates the possibilities of single and multiple images as cinematic and thereby plays with the veiling of meanings and narratives. The photographs in this collection are about that skin, a flat expanse of a body that recedes into the hinterland and more importantly into the interior.His works are often positioned within particular timeframes and frameworks within Southern Africa evoking melancholia, loss and longing.
