Peter Bennett, Going Away
Peter is interested in how photography not only creates a record of the past, but also provides a metaphor for the processes of remembering and forgetting. His work often returns to ideas of the sea as a place of escape and otherness.
Going Away is a photographic book that explores the coast as a ‘remembered place’, a place of imaginative departure from which we contemplate past time. This liminal landscape, where land meets sea, is rich in associations between what is fixed and boundless, stable and unstable, located and place-less.
