Mineral Matter | A New Exhibition by Brooke Holm


Following on from her much loved series Salt and Sky, internationally renowned Australian photographer Brooke Holm is returning to Modern Times this Thursday for her second solo exhibition, Mineral Matter. Having relocated to New York in 2016, Holm’s return to Melbourne marks the premier of a highly anticipated body of work depicting Iceland’s dynamic landscape and river deltas, documenting their movement of minerals through streams and rivers leading out to sea. Photographed entirely from above, this breathtakingly beautiful series is a departure from the earlier work exploring the impact of human interference on the landscape. Mineral Matter is focused rather on the energy and force within nature in creating pathways and areas where humans can then reside, explore and embark on adventure. 

Brooke is able to represent the forceful command of nature with a divine sensitivity, textured tracks; flights of birds; and ripple of waves create a sense of uninhabited wilderness. Her lens captures the awe-inspiring influence of nature and puts humanity’s domination over the environment into question.

“Volcanic ash, sediment and colourful minerals are collected and moved by the travels of glacier water while recent human relics such as vehicle tracks and footsteps weave in and out of frame.” -Brooke Holm

Truly captivating, I'm a little sad I won't be in Melbourne to attend the exhibition! Opening Thursday, 21st September, visit Modern Times for more information.
