This new body of work by British photographer Charles March marks a departure from his abstract photographs of trees and wooded landscapes to the sea. For this series, March focused on just one short stretch of the Atlantic coast off the Bahamian island of Eleuthera. The photographs in this exhibition were all shot here over four years and at different times of year. Author William Ewing writes in his foreword for the accompanying catalogue: There is great variety in this set of Charles March pictures. They are never entirely abstract: one perceives clearly what is land and what is water. Sometimes the sea seems very benign; sometimes it threatens, like a towering wall about to crash down upon us. Some pictures seem as if glimpsed from the window of a bullet train, the sun glinting off the surface. Disconcerting are one or two pictures with tilted horizons, upsetting our most cherished notions of the earth’s fundamental order.” Charles March, Seascape September 11-15, 2017 Hamiltons 13 Carlos Pl, Mayfair London W1K 2EU United Kingdom http://www.hamiltonsgallery.com/ ...
