“And so to midnight and into the ebb-time when the spirit slips lightly from sick men and when it’s like no-mans-land between yesterday and tomorrow and material things are loosely integrated and barely tacked together.”

David Jones, In Parenthesis.

Self portrait taken in Mametz Wood

A photographer living and working in Wales, in his series of photographs for Mametz Wood, Rob has taken David Jones’ poetry as a starting point to explore the effects of war on the mind. Rob uses double exposures to both disturb reality and create a strange, surreal landscape that explores the experience of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or what was then known as shell shock.

as to this hour when unicorns break cover
But sweet sister death has gone debauched today
In the regions of air
