Fortuna

 

The wreck of the Fortuna lies on the stony shore of a Baltic island. This provides the backdrop to a recent sequence of photographs in which I explore the shapes and symbolism of the ship.

These two links lead to a small selection of the photographs taken by the wreck in April and May 2013. I have recently completed a film entitled "Fortuna – a requiem" from sequences of still pictures – pictures of decay and sunrise. For the soundtrack I recorded the waves and coastal birds of the island. These were integrated with sections of Maurice Duruflé's Requiem, recorded in St Mark's Church, Stockholm. The film is not shown on this website.
