Photographer Name: Joseph Anthony

Year: 2018

Image Description: Before sunrise from a small boat at the ocean entry at the base of Mount Kilauea volcano. A visceral, challenging and exhausting shoot. Balancing on the boat, hand held with a 400mm prime lens in low light. A "firehose" was erupting from the cliff into it's own huge cone and then flowing like a flaming tributary into the ocean via various mini lava falls like this one. Primordial, evocative and atmospheric from the mystical fog to the piercing contrast of the single drip of lava. I felt as if I was watching the dawn of creation on earth.

Year: 2018

Image Description: Untitled from the series 'Ex-Voto'

Series Name: Ex-Voto

Series Description: A handwritten note neatly folded and hidden in the crevice of a rock, crosses etched onto stone, ribbon carefully wrapped around piles of twigs. These are all offerings of religious devotion, known as ‘Ex-Votos’ and found at Christian pilgrimage sites worldwide. Often placed anonymously and hidden from view, pilgrims leave ex-votos as expressions of hope and gratitude, creating a tangible narrative between faith, person and the landscape. Taken at the pilgrimage sites of Lourdes (France), Ballyvourney (Ireland) and Grabarka (Poland), the project encompasses formal portraiture, large format landscape and small, detailed still-lifes of the objects and markers left behind. Shot on 5x4, large format film, the images evoke a distinct stillness and reflect the mysterious, timeless quality present at these sites of great spiritual contemplation. People and landscape merge as place, memory and history entwine. NB all images untitled and taken in 2016/2017
