Edward Fausty: Moving Mountains








mountains loom in the distance as foreground rushes by     








Moving Mountains   浮山掠影

These pictures were made from a speeding taxi in Guangxi Province, China, an area known for its classic scenes of karst mountains. Having had minimal luck finding views, I was on my way back to Beijing when they started to appear as a possibility. As we whizzed past trees and other things the mountains loomed in the distance against everchanging foreground impressions. The blurring of the foreground added its own abstract force while actually allowing the mountains to be revealed.

The images have been printed on 36"x25" Arches Text, a delicate, warm book weight paper slightly reminiscent of a thin rice paper.
