Jordan’s Wadi Rum desert, translated literally as 'Valley of the Moon' in English, is renowned for its red sands, Mars-like topography, and nomadic Bedouin tribes. The series traces the viewer's imagination through a stark depiction of this dream-like world and its ephemera; offering a subjective window into a reality unbound by time or place.
A landscape both unchanged for thousands of years, yet seemingly transient, Valley of the Moon presents a visual dialogue with the desert and its transcendental oscillations between man and nature, light and dark, reality and imagination.
Valley of the Moon Artist Book: Limited to 100 copies, 200 x 290mm, 56 pages, 27 black and white plates, Soft singer sewn cover with red pearlescent end papers. The book includes written texts by Shana Chandra.
