Between Lands (ebook)
Magic, mystery and mythology of the Mediterranean
‘BETWEEN LANDS' the book is produced by fine art photographer Elliot Nichol. The fifty page hardback edition contains a selection of stunning black and white images of the Maltese coast. Using photographic long exposures techniques, Elliot creates imagery that provides glimpses into another world; calming rough seas, currents and waves change into ethereal formations as clouds streak across distilled skies, capturing all the magic, mystery and mythology of the Mediterranean. Throughout the exhibition opportunities abound to see into another world – a tranquil, purely surreal, untouchable place…a place of legends.
Kriss Nichol is a writer who has taken Elliot's vision of legends and translated them into poetry. Each of Elliot's images is accompanied by a poem that seeks to explore a Greek myth, enabling another level of meaning to permeate the photographs, that of the connection between gods and mortals, land, sea and sky.
