Джесика Саундърс за изложбата EARTH21 октомври 2020
"The title of Vlahov’s photographic series encapsulates, in only three words, all I have written above. In each of the three images, the authority of the human crumbles away. All encompass a human figure: naked, shrunken, and humbled by the larger landscape. The environment’s importance is honoured and homed in on, as the bodies that lie almost sacrificially are diminished by a greater presence. But, there is a resonating warmth from these images too. The bodies are embraced by the earth, held by the curvatures, hollows, and gaps.
An equilibrium is reached when the power relations between humanity and nature are balanced out – it’s nature who allows the bodies in and in return the bodies are comforted, tranquil, and at rest.”
