'An aphorism, properly stamped and molded, has not been "deciphered" when it has simply been read; rather one has then to begin its interpretation, for which is required an art of interpretation.' -- Nietzsche, 'On the Genealogy of Morals'

Paul Kenny: Lonbain Wall « Previous | |Next »
February 24, 2013

Paul Kenny has photographed a stone wall near the ruined village of Lonbain, on the Applecross peninsula in Wester Ross in the Scottish highlands. The ruined village is a remnant of the clearances of the 1780's.

Kenny says:

Above the beach, on a plateau above the shoreline, is a sheepfold made of the most beautiful rounded stones. The wall is beautiful, each stone, shaped to perfect ovoid symmetry by hundreds (thousands?) of years in the sea. Each stone is decorated with intricate colonies of lichen.

Kenny has constructed a project out of photographing the wall:

Kenny focuses on the detail of the Lonbain wall--the individual stones in the wall. It is lovely work. I just love the rich black and white tones of the images.
