To Leave A Light Impression

Photographs from the 'Fullmoon' and 'Present Form' series as well as a group of small-scale bronze sculptures.

The 'Fullmoon' series of photographs, which have taken Almond to every continent over a period of 13 years, are taken under the light of a full moon using long exposure, enabling details undetectable to the human eye to be revealed.

Almond’s interest in what the landscape reveals is echoed in his ‘Present Form’ photographs of standing stones on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides installed at the centre of the exhibition. These photographs of individual upright stones, wrought out of the oldest known rocks in the British Isles, ravaged and partially covered with vegetation, form part of a stone circle dating from 3,000 BC, and are thought to have been used as an astronomical observatory to measure 18.6-year moon cycles.

Shown alongside the stones are 12 bronze sculptures which act as displaced measures since each one represents the relative weight of one of the astronauts that walked on the moon.
