Fault Line Book Project

Alan McFetridge’s book project Fault Line features selected photography from his investigation into the theme of habitat.

It leads us through a series of thought-provoking takes on the concept — Habitat, as metaphor for anxiety and desire; as a symbol of both loss and hope for the future; and as an evocation of imagination and illusion. McFetridge’s work is renowned for it’s mesh between surrealism and the sublime. Here that characteristic emerges in the narration and interventions of colour to present tension and threshold. This book accentuates McFetridge’s contrasting colour schemes and textures to reinforce the idea of habitat creating a tactile and visual experience.

Here are some teaser images from the publication. It will be released in September 2016.
