”.... A feeling that can not be seen, that does not appear in our ‘visual horizon of the world’ but is felt and experienced from the inside.” — M. Henry
These fields of color originate in sea and sky and horizon line, imbued with the emotion of raw beautiful nature, and turned completely upside down, as if we were giddy with delight and standing on our heads just to heighten the magic of what is in front of our eyes.
They are both serenely meditative and emotionally stirring — like a simple Zen shock that wakes us up to appreciate the moment. Simona Bonanno creates these perfectly measured photographs with such grace and precision that we lose ourselves gazing at them, and momentarily forget our day-to-day concerns. Take a moment to pause in wonder and delight.
— Jim Casper
Editor’s Note: We first discovered Bonanno’s work when she attended LensCulture Fotofest Paris 2013. Sign up now for our reviews in Amsterdam—spots still available!
