Alexander Arnild Peitersen’s first monograph, From Now On, is a fragmented reflection on times that have passed, depicted in an array of monochrome and colour images captured over a period of six years.
Peitersen is focusing on themes such as transition and memory and investigates personal feelings of isolation and alienation in this intriguing and slow pulsed body of work. Scenes of landscapes, hunting, dancing, drinking, and the unforgiving reality of nature’s dominance all interweave in Peitersen’s set of bleached and reduced colour images. Peitersen juxtaposes mysticism, rituals and poetry in a way to map out the necessities needed to survive as a human being.
