Paul Seawright

HIDDEN (Afghanistan, 2002)

In Paul Seawright's HIDDEN the violence lies chiefly under the surface. The minefields in Afghanistan conceal a deadly menace that cannot be seen, but is nonetheless palpably present. Because of the threat which emanates from them, places of great beauty take on a deeper, at times richer meaning. The violence in these landscapes is latent, waiting, until the moment of destruction presents itself.
