Dinosaur Dust is a collection of photographs by Zoe Childerley exploring encounters between people and nature in the Mojave Desert.
Dinosaur Dust has been shortlisted for the Burn Emerging Photographers Fund, the Athens Photo Festival and featured in the Independent on Sunday.
It was made between 2014-19 over several trips through the Mojave Desert in California. Subjects become collaborators in an open-ended narrative, both experienced and directed, telling stories of life lived with a heightened sense of mortality and longing in this isolated landscape. The work explores encounters between people and nature, playing with light, impermanence and the faculties of seeing.
Zoe Childerley is an artist with a strong record in community projects and is a Senior Lecturer at Brighton University.
She has exhibited nationally and internationally and undertaken numerous commissions and residencies in Italy, California, Colorado, Nepal, Jamaica and across the UK.
Dinosaur Dust is published by Another Place Press and is available to buy on their website.
