The shadow (gold and mud) by Peter Finnemore

Rut Blees Luxemburg invetsigaes space in photography

The final work in my 12-part series on space and photography is by the British artist Peter Finnemore.

This image foregrounds what all the previous works in this series have intimated: the body.

Though the body is merely a dark shape, a fleeting trace, this contour holds an animated expanse of animals, flowers and a small Buddha.

The title, The Shadow (Gold and Mud), hints at two propositions commingling: the muddy, base ground of the everyday and the aura of the sensual body, cast by golden light. Fused here by an exuberant ludicity, they create the commonsensual lucidity that photography offers us a glimpse of.
