The world around us is perpetually changing – ice melts, glaciers shift, weather changes and time passes. Nothing stays the same, neither we nor the spaces we occupy.
‘Passage’ captures a time of transition in Tom Goldner’s photography practice. In 2015 and 2016, Tom made two expeditions around the Mont Blanc regions of France, Italy and Switzerland. Ever-conscious of the changing nature of the landscape – the fact that you could stand in the same spot one year later and nd everything had changed – he shot eeting moments on medium format lm.
Back in Melbourne, Tom carefully developed and printed each photograph by hand in his darkroom. The experience reawakened his love of manual photography, and he saw parallels between the physical exertion of actually taking the pictures and the concentration needed in producing the atmospheric black and white landscapes.
This process is often portrayed as a lost or dying art form. Rather than focusing on nostalgia and trends, Tom’s work explores the relevance of lm and darkroom printing in the contemporary landscape of photography.
