The photo: Why are we so fascinated by the horror genre? Whether it's watching an ordinary scene turn into a bloodbath on the big screen, listening to bands like Impaled, or reading one of Stephen King’s novels; maybe it is the feeling of relief which keeps one coming back to what should fundamentally be an unpleasant experience. Relief that is sprouting from the back-of-the-mind realization that there exists a barrier between what we are sensing and the actual reality that is surrounding us. It is only when that cozy reality turns its back on us, do we remember all of the fears which were otherwise kept dormant, only this time, the danger may be real. This photo captures an eerie scene of the fog settling over the mountains. The atmosphere is daunting, the air is filled with moisture and the smell of wet soil. The muted colours and contrast of this capture translate perfectly onto the matt finish of the Hahnemühle’s Museum Etching Fine Art Paper, as if obscuring one’s vision and relaying a sense of helplessness. The smooth, subtle texture of this paper complements the features of the fog, adding that extra bit of volume and complexity to its appearance.


Behind the scenes: Of course, the process of capturing this photo did not put Robin and I into any real danger. However, to get to the spot where this photo was taken, we did have to walk along the narrow 2-lane highway bridge with only about a foot of clearance separating us from the oncoming traffic. Looking back, maybe it was not the brightest idea we’ve come up with.
