BANARAS BACKS BY TERRY BURROWSThe Banaras Back Book lines up many torsos – 1,008, an auspicious number for Hindus – along the ghats of the Ganges at Varanasi (Banaras), city of Shiva, one of India's most revered sites of Hindu ritual. This parade of backs, mostly male and strangely impersonal, conveys much of the cultural wealth and contradiction that is contemporary India. It’s a wryly odd subject choice, and the styling itself is unusual in that, while obliquely containing elements of both, this is not portrait-photography, nor is it photography of place. - exert from Anne Finegan.

Liquēre BY DANNY EASTWOODLiquēre - Latin verb meaning - to be fluid
Photography is often a literal transposition of reality, but it can also blur boundaries. Eastwood's images aim to confound the viewer. Submerged, reflected & refracted; the figure is presented in an almost abstract way. The pared back form becomes sculptural with the subtle modulations of light and motion.
These are transitory moments of movement - the figure and the water perfectly meeting each other in a moment of flux.
