Rae Begley: And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out

Photographer Rae Begley uses 35mm film and the silver gelatin printing process to create large-scale works that connect her audience to the beauty, and devastation of human impact on the Ngozumpa Glacier and Gokyo Lake in Nepal. She documents climate change and the presence of plastic chairs, discarded tarps and solar domes. The sacred mountain landscape is dually honoured with an installation of stacked rock piles, a ‘cairn’ in Tibetan Buddhism, and a sound work made in collaboration with Erik Omen.
