Artist statement: ‘Under erasure’ is an image of Yangykala (fiery fortresses) in the north-west region of Turkmenistan in the Balkan region. Photographed on medium format film, no drones were used. This work is part of an ongoing series about ‘badlands’, terrains heavily eroded by wind and water, and holes in the landscape. Once the bottom of the ancient Tethys Sea, the canyon is the memory of wind and water. Photography about landscape is not only a celebration of mysterious beauty but also a lament on the transience of our time on Earth and its future.
