British photographer James Greens’s Genesis series are wonderfully clear, simple, reflective. Many of us, even if we’re not familiar with the Bible, know the famous lines from Genesis 1:2 – the second verse of the first chapter in the Book of Genesis that takes place after the initial creation and describes the Earth as formless, dark and void, with no light or organisms. The line from the opening chapter makes the order you see these photographs in particularly important.
This version is from the King James Bible:
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
I can’t find out much more about Green – there’s alot of Green’s on the net but I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for more of his work.
