Day #229/365: A Bear’s Ghosts…
File under: Trails and Influences: Recent Explorations. Case #28/52.
I recently wandered amongst former structures of/connected to conflict which were now being recovered by nature and/or in part semi-forgotten (see Day #228/365)… which lead me indirectly to the below images.
There is a (brutalist) beauty and fascination to them, they seem to have tumbled from both the future and the past; despite the all too real history which inspired them, they now seem almost like impossible fictions or props from a filmic story.
In a way they remind me of Charles Frégers photographs of folkloric ritual costumes (see Day #69/365), in that they seem to be a version of something which has been taken to an almost unreal or surreal other/further degree.
Beyond that I think I shall let them speak for themselves…
