"The light, the camera and things holding."

Have just discovered the amazing Rosamond Purcell, artist, photographer and author. She photographs things as they crumble and wear away. In "Bookworm", in a marriage of collage and assemblage, she takes books that have been destroyed - some gently, some not so gently -
and combines them with nature's detritus; bird skeletons, insect parts, leaves and seedpods, and creates fascinating works of art. Studying each piece is to enter a different world and become lost in its trails to oblivion.
