[Photography and words by Fi White (she/her)]
The following pieces are a series of extracts taken from a sketchbook photographic project based around images of the sky, taken over a period of three months in the summer of 2018. The project begun after researching Alfred Stieglitz’s Equivalents series, in which he photographed the sky over a period beginning from the summer of 1922. He paid close attention to the abstract forms of the clouds as well as the ephemeral and ethereal nature of the sky. Third year History of Art student Fi White utilised Stieglitz’s series as inspiration, whilst also taking into account her upbringing. As a child, she moved frequently and found comfort in the notion of the sky and its ever-changing view as a constant. No matter the location, the sky always provided something beautiful to look at. During the summer of 2018, they were lucky enough to travel to a few different locations across Europe and utilised this opportunity to capture photographs of the sky at differing times of day in places such as Northumberland, Edinburgh, Rosemarkie, Cambridgeshire, and Lemnos.
