Karen Zalamea: Subarctic Phase
Curated by Katie Belcher
27 April to 8 June 2019

In keeping with the ephemeral nature of the photographic process, Karen Zalamea used a handcrafted 4x5 camera and fashioned lenses out of ice to produce her newest series of photographs, They are lost as soon as they are made. Working in collaboration with technicians to fabricate lens moulds, she used these moulds to freeze local water while in Reykjavík, Iceland. The work explores the possibilities of deconstructing the mechanics of image-making, and of capturing the natural landscape with elements of nature itself.
