Overview participating exhibitions
The world that Lucy Helton portrays in the ACTIONS OF CONSEQUENCE consists of strange, unearthly landscapes devoid of all life. It is the future earth, where catastrophes have inevitably occurred thanks to man’s destructive and apathetic behaviour. Although some photographs are scientific images, stripped of their original purpose and context, and other photographs play with the viewer’s sense of scale, time and place, they always try to create an experience of discovery and research. The black and white images depict a world that is both frightening and beautiful, and reflect Helton’s concerns, about her own past and about the earth’s uncertain future.
