Shedding Light on Paradise

BY ALISON BESTE
@ VOL 20 ON APR 18, 2014

Alison Beste's photographs explore the boundaries between the built and natural world using light effects on the ocean horizon. Light from cities, vessels, and beacons become powerful metaphors for the ways in which we interact, manage, and attempt to control the environment. In Hawaii, where expectations of an organic paradise collide with an often-manufactured landscape, Allison's work scrutinizes the tension between nature and artifice. Alison uses light to examine how constructs of nature and the artificial are interrelated, ambiguous, and mediated by culture.

Nature Is My Country Club: Wilderness of Light

BY CHRISTOPHER CUDWORTH
@ VOL 2 ON FEB 29, 2016

While working on the foundations of his book, Nature Is My Country Club,Christopher Cudworth wanted to find a common denominator or symbol of wilderness that all people could access. He also wanted to give people a practical tool for accessing nature wherever they find themselves. As a writer and artist, naturalist and photographer, he arrived at the conclusion that light itself constitutes an untamed element. It is at once infinite and chaotic, untrammeled and vibrant. In other words, light reveals and releases within us feelings of both connection and freedom. And as light is found everywhere, and on all things, it serves as a method to get back in touch with the natural world, even if one is nowhere near what is traditionally called “wilderness.”
