From Here It's Mostly Downhill
(Ongoing project)

From Here It's Mostly Downhill is an ongoing project that aims to document the birth and the making of a long term photographic project.

Photographer James Wright's Terra Incognita project is about time. He is studying how natural landscapes, perceived as immutable, change with the seasons. Beyond making photographs, the project involves periods of total immersion in the wilderness as it takes place in the uninhabited west coast of the isle of Jura (Inner Hebrides, Scotland).

For almost two years, I have been following him exploring the island, facing the landscape, anticipating the changes to build a series of images, and repeatedly going back to the same locations to recreate photos that are similar, yet different.

From Here It's Mostly Downhill takes an intimate look at the creative process, the achievements as well as the doubts. It tells the story of the unseen, of what it takes to create.

From Here It's Mostly Downhill est un projet en cours qui a pour but de documenter la naissance et la réalisation d'un long projet photographique.

Le photographe James Wright travaille actuellement sur une série photographique, Terra Incognita, qui interroge le temps et plus spécifiquement les traces de son passage sur des paysages perçus comme immuables. Le projet, réalisé sur la côté ouest inhabitée de l'île de Jura (Hébrides Intérieures, Écosse) implique des périodes de totale immersion dans des paysages sauvages.

Cela fait bientôt deux ans que je le suis dans ses explorations et l'observe alors qu'il se confronte au paysage, anticipe les changements pour construire une série d'images et retourne encore et encore aux mêmes endroits pour recréer des photos qui, bien que semblables, sont différentes.

From Here It's Mostly Downhill est un regard intime sur le processus créatif, les accomplissements tout autant que les doutes. Cette série donne à voir l'invisible et ce que cela implique de créer.
