Kevin Kemner : “Illustro Divum di Nevada” (Photography)

::

Reflecting the spontaneous and temporal quality of the condensation trails, the images are recorded with an iPhone, the camera I almost always have ready at hand. This is in opposition to the larger traditional film formats I prefer for documenting architecture and the built environment. Images have been cropped to a square format. Since the contrails usually happen for a short period around dawn almost every image was shot within sight of my home. K Kemner

Prior to moving to Las Vegas in 1995, the image I had of the southwestern United States was one of an endless landscape of canyons embraced by an equally endless sky of vertical cumuli. Having been raised in the Midwest this was an image formed from afar, largely through the works of iconic figures such as John Ford and Ansel Adams. On arriving here, however, I discovered an entirely other landscape not reflected in the images that I had become familiar with, a landscape of great scale and openness countered by an endlessly vacant sky; the landscape of the Great Basin and Mojave Deserts.

It is the sky of my new home, Nevada that I find most remarkable; often cloudless for weeks the Mojave sky makes one aware of subtleties in the emptiness, observant of things otherwise omitted in the tradition of classic western photography. Such are the condensation trails, threadlike clouds formed by the passage of commercial airliners that appear overhead from late fall to early spring when the air is cold and dry, a linear rather than billowing cloudscape. Having the appearance of being organized, the abstractness of the condensation trails leads one to seek hidden narratives, search for meanings as they are inscribed on and then dissipate in the sky. Introduction – “Illustro Divum di Nevada” Series

This work is part of an ongoing record of the sky above Las Vegas from 2008 to the present.

“To be sure the landscape can’t run away, and yet I always fear that it may. [Sometimes] I must set up my tripod, so I worry that the landscape may disappear the next second and I don’t stop keeping an eye on it while I get prepared. Then, when pressing the shutter, I hold my breath. These moments are the greatest joys in my life, as if I were undressing the most beautiful woman in the world—that is, if she will allow herself be undressed. If the photo is a success, it means that she was willing. If not, it has been a lovely dream.” – Mario Giacomelli

“A photo isn’t only what you see, but also what your imagination adds to it. My own imagination may add something else, a third person’s something else again. But does it matter? What matters is the contact between us, the fact that we talk about trees losing their leaves, about objects we crush underfoot without realizing it, about that house dying gently, abandoned by its owner, even though it’s the house where he was born, where he learnt to cry and to laugh.” – Mario Giacomelli
