Albury photographs under the Lofoten Islands' midnight summer sun to create ghostly cyanotypes of a broken chandelier found at a Norwegian junk store, creating works that speak of the passing of time both physically and metaphorically. Paired with these unique works are sculptures from her Burned Out series. Inspired by incinerated 16mm film and using the raku firing technique, Albury's otherworldly sculptures are reminiscent of remnants of fossil bones found in an archeology site.
