‘Border Country’ is not a real place, but depicts instead an inner landscape in the mind of photographer James Clancy. He searches the outdoors for images that correspond with his own emotional states, otherwise impossible for others to grasp. In sometimes mystical-looking black-and-white photographs, Clancy shows secluded forest clearings, dilapidated dwellings that still harbour the remains of human habitation, paths leading to an unknown destination. Strange plant structures, traces of dirt, rust and dust, and the play of light and shadow create captivating invented worlds, fusing real and imagined imagery. Border Country toured several European cities and was exhibited in Finland and Berlin in 2011.
