the Periodical issue 10

July 29th, 2013 by gileslane

Issue 10 is winging its way to subscribers across the land (and sea and air). This month I have selected another wonderful book by Gair DunlopDispersals – documenting the pathos of an RAF airbase, RAF Coltishall, in the process of its abandonment and closure. Dispersals is the latest in Gair’s ongoing exploration of the “military pastoral complex”. Like his works on Atom Town and Bletchley Park, he captures the romance of residue and impending dereliction whilst concurrently hinting at the industrial scale of human effort that populated and worked these landscapes. His images are full of longing and absence, resignation to their fate, almost as if they had just emerged from a fog of Nepenthe, bringing forgetfulness of all ills.
