“World” by Anthony Gerace

A look at London-based photographer Anthony Gerace’s new body of work. Completed over the course of last year’s lockdown(s), “World / Back When I Was Out There…” is an attempt to engage with landscape despite not being able to engage with the literal landscape. The images were collaged during the second COVID lockdown after a year spent poring through decade’s worth of photographs taken in locations both familiar and far less traversed. The result is a representation of a world no longer accessible to most of us, “purposefully intervened upon,” as Gerace states:

“My practice relies on collage and landscape as its two foundational pillars; the past year has made one of those pillars a little difficult to rest on, and as a result, the collages I’ve been making have changed significantly, and I’ve come to see my archive as just as much of a source of material as the magazines I obsessively collect and just as obsessively destroy. In this way the work has changed, and my two approaches have unified.”
