“What holds my attention in the book is not these fleeting and ephemeral bodies and animal pieces placed in ritualized opposition, but rather the natural landscapes they oppose themselves to. The images of the wintery grounds, rocks and trees pivot the book into something more as if to declare the insignificance of the people within no matter their youth, their cavorting and undulating bodies.” – Brad Feuerhelm , American Suburb X
Alexander Arnild Peitersen’s first monograph From Now On is a fragmented reflection on times that have passed, depicted in an array of monochrome and colour images captured over a period of six years.
Peitersen is focusing on themes such as transition and memory and investigates personal feelings of isolation and alienation in this intriguing and slow pulsed body of work. Scenes of landscapes, hunting, dancing, drinking, and the unforgiving reality of nature’s dominance all interweave in Peitersen’s set of bleached and reduced colour images. Peitersen juxtaposes mysticism, rituals and poetry in a way to map out the necessities needed to survive as a human being.
