exhibition: stromboli

images taken on the island of stromboli, with the help of a thornton pickard imperial half-plate camera. the images were created in 2016 and are of both stromboli town, on the north east of the island and the main settlement, and ginostra, the small village on the south-west side. stromboli is a dark, enchanted island with an active volcano, whose lava erupts in fiery plumes roughly every 20 minutes and whose black, gnarly rocks and even blacker sand make a spellbinding contrast with the pure white of the arabic-style houses with their flat rooves, porthole windows and castellated chimneys. stromboli is one of a group seven islands, known as the aeolians, and together they form a cluster sited in the tyrrhenian sea between italy and sicily. they are accessible only by boat.
