New series with Mark Aitken about the relationship between photography and sound. We know that photographs are fictions and not being able to see them compounds this fact. Just try and explain a photograph to somebody. Instead, this series investigates sounds inspired by photographs. Hearing is another way of seeing... This week: Iceland is an ideal environment to record sound as much of the island is shrouded in silence. Photographer Matthew Broadhead explores visual elements on a geological survey of the island described by NASA as a 'space analogue'. With field recordings of pin dropping nothingness and sounds from the abyss by Cyclobe.
