Framed in light grey coloured oak with museum glass
Sky has nothing to do with previous skyscapes in photography and painting: the “Equivalents” of Alfred Stieglitz, William Eggleston’s At Zenith, or even John Constable’s cloud studies. Instead it’s about taking on Norfolk’s “big sky country” so completely that it rejects the dominance of the horizon—a feature that is so cliché in mainstream Norfolk photography. This is just one picture from the trilogy series Field, Wood, Sky. These photographs have been made over the past five years in a little corner of the county, where on a summer’s evening Partyka has captured the most exquisite light.
