Claudia den Boer’s second photobook is about connecting to something that has existed for a long time, to slow down, to be still, to look, and look again. Why do we tend to pick up stones? We toss them in the water, or take them as souvenirs. In doing so, we seem to seek connection to the earth, or maybe even to eternity. It is precisely this connection that Den Boer was searching for when she picked up stones in the Sahara and Tibet, around Montserrat and in the Georgian Caucasus. Through photographic studies, she examines the experience of light, scale, perspective, and spatiality in an eclectic and meditative selection of images depicting mountains, rocks, and stones.
