To Pick up a Stone — Claudia den Boer
Why do we tend to pick up stones? Throw them in the water or take them as a souvenir of a trip? We seem to want to connect to earth this way, or perhaps even to eternity. It is precisely this connection that Claudia den Boer was looking for when she picked up stones in the Sahara, Tibet, around the mysterious Montserrat, and the mighty Georgian Caucasus. In photographic studies, Den Boer examines the experience of light, scale, perspective and spatiality through an eclectic variety of images of mountains, rocks and stones.
