  • jez riley french - 'dissolves' photo book + ty cd

    limited edition (100 copies numbered) A5 photo book + ty cd + download code

    the eagerly awaited document of the first series of mineral explorations, capturing the sounds of shale, iron ore, limestone, dolomite and snail shells in flux.

    ‘again, French turns our ears towards captivating worlds of sound’

    ‘when he gets it right, which he very often does, French has an uncanny knack of producing work that grabs us firmly by the ear and the mind…stunning images that trigger the imagination as much as the intimate sound worlds presented here’’

    Sold Out



recordings of mineral dissolves (northern italy 2014) | time spent during two residencies | village arts festivals | one on my own and one with my daughter | one in the val d’aupa and one in udine province | the photographs trace my drives through the val d’aupa, searching for teleferica to record | at several places municipal advertising boards had been left unadorned, revealing traces of tape, glue and fragments of paper | each one fascinating to me | their randomly created details hinting landscapes, abstracts, mined mountain sides | the recordings mirror my walks along the rivers of the val d’aupa and the hill paths of udine | picking up a handful of rocks, drawn by their appearance | each mineral with its own audible variations | then the profusion of snail shells along the paths of topolo village | for me there are often synergies between photographs and sound recordings, something hard to define but that speaks clearly of itself.

recorded with JrF d-series hydrophones
