Shelter explores our relationship with time, the medium of photography and the constructed landscape. It is a short series of photographs exploring mountain shelters in the south of France.
These images observe the tranquillity of the landscape and rest-bite provided by the shelters in cold conditions. Secluded in the landscape their monochromatic appearance an abstraction of snow and fog, is mimicked by the medium of black and white analogue film.
Their appearance fixed in time by the ice, the negative and the traditional medium of their design—a juxtaposition between conventional building techniques and modern developments on the lower slopes.
