This series of minimalist images by Simon Ker-Fix Talyor explores a world where salt has become the dominant element. The images focus on natural subjects, while a singular, barely present character provides the framework for this reflection.
Simon, who is a filmmaker and photographer residing in Cape Town, has recently returned from an artist residency at the Arteles Creative Centre in Finland. The residency programme, entitled “Back to Basics”, asks participants to isolate themselves from the internet and phones for a month, giving them space to create.
Applicants are encouraged to create whatever comes up for them during this time of hibernation from the outside world.
