Excerpt from Meditation at the Oasis film (2015):
"When I'm out there taking photos of the desert rocks and encounters, it is a form of meditation. A connection to some form of higher power. Its an intense form of focus and concentration. Its about being completely in the moment, absorbed fully in the activity. In this state of mind one becomes a channel for an energy that is so much vaster than oneself. When I enter into a meditative state, I an also experience art on a different dimension. You get to experience things in the art that may not have been present when you first encountered it. It's as though you have accessed the hidden, secretive dimension of the artwork. A connection to what it was that inspired the artwork's creation."
Alexander de Cadenet
“The inversions can be read as a meditation on visual perception - not only on what we see but on how we see it, an in particular how the banal and trivial can be mysteriously transmuted into something else.”
The Inversion Photos use the inversion process to celebrate encounters within nature or to bring out the beauty and magic within the everyday.
"Digital negatives of everyday life that have been transformed by the inversion process in such a way to draw out the profoundly spiritual response of those moments for the the artist".
