Rocky by Jethro Marshall
A photographic study on landscapes of extraction. Documenting quarries in the South West of England, Jethro Marshall offers up black and white artistry that captures and reveals the scarred environments hidden through the rolling hills, dairy farms & polite cottages of the rural idyll.
The images are introduced with an essay by architect and critic Sam Jacob. “The quarry is a form of land art that reveals an interface between the geological realities of the shallow depths of the Earth’s crust and the values of the civilised world.”
Marshall finds alternative landmarks in the countryside to present an ‘anti-bucolic’ but pro-rural depiction of country life.
