Through the Wetlands Etienne Labbe
- Chromogenic Prints on Dibond
- 24 × 48 inches
61 × 121.9 cm
Diptych taken of a wetland. Long grasses and cattails sway in the foreground, creating an abstract pattern of dark, vertical lines against the soft light of breaking day. Etienne Labbe is an accomplished photographer, and his photographs are in collections in many cities in North America. In Labbe's work, movement is used as a creative and transformative force by which ordinary landscapes are altered. This particular series is taken with a slow shutter speed, while the photographer is in motion. The large format chromogenic prints are on archival paper, mounted on dibond, and faced cleanly with acrylic. A stainless steel channel is mounted to the work on the back for easy installation.
