Product Description

In this period of Covid-19, Eldon Garnet has worked with IMPULSE(b) to present his new photographic piece, not as an exhibition, but as an e-book, Saved & Drowned. Garnet describes Saved & Drowned as “A small narrative of our time.” In fact, it is not a small narrative but rather, a universal photographic epic. It is a photographic work of 21 images, 7 Cantos each of 3 images. The photographs contain pleasure and destruction, often simultaneously. The narrative is universal and personal. The movement is from elevation, from the Saved, to the depths, to the Drowned. Nature is presented as dark, as a place of destruction, eloquently, even beautifully abject. The blackened eye, the scaly skin, the bodies overtaken by water profoundly invoke the impossibility of possibility. Here is nature’s will to death. It is clear, we do not win in this epic struggle.
