Description
Photography is best known for its detailed descriptions of the world around us but it can also be used to imagine new realms, just as with painting and drawing. The title of this piece refers to stones and daggers, both objects of our visible world, but here the artist uses their shapes to build an unearthly still life or landscap using just paper and light (and no camera!).
