Searching for Stillness: Volume One
Behlen’s work highlights the joy the exclusivity that comes with the Polaroid and utilises the process to the best of its nature – presenting us with a series of meditative and beautiful images.
The tactile size of the book itself seeks to add to this with the various marks, blemishes and reactions of the Polaroid process creating wonderful dialogues with the subjects in the images.
The images are beautifully arranged in conversation with one another – from subtleties such as horizon lines meeting across the centrefold, the cattle paired with a held up skull to the curve of a path mimicking the curve of a crashing wave on the opposite page (not the mention the walker).
