SAND Photographic Depiction of the Arabian Desert
Over the five years of photographing the Arabian Desert, my appreciation for the desert flora, fauna and human elements became heightened due to the minimalistic landscape emphasising their presence. These points of interest became more than a geographical reference, they were telling the story; they are the story. Unbearable summer heat combined with almost freezing night time temperatures during the winter months made me question how anything could survive in such an unforgiving environment. Documenting these narratives of survival seemed like a small act of acknowledgment, a nod of respect.
Anthony incorporates a minimalistic approach within his photography and this simplicity shifts our perspective so the imagery is less about actual place and more about emotional state. In his photographs he uses negative space and an ethereal aesthetic to provide the viewer with a sense of serenity and calm, sharing the emotions of the moments he captures. “My wish is to offer different frames of reference that transport you to a place that is suspended between reality and surrealism"
