CAROLYN BUNT, through the discipline of photography, is engaged intensely with the act of looking, and concentrates on a kind of visual scrutiny, into which the viewer is drawn, generating a particular quietness and strength. Significant events lie hidden in her seemingly empty but quietly powerful photographs and prints. These wounded landscapes hide the dark truths of secret histories. Turbulent clouds prevent these locations from existing solely as beautiful places of natural innocence. Their power lies in the withholding of their stories. Conceptually they drift away from documentary photography into a phenomenon of discovery.
