As the Anvil Falls – Seb Smith


Using Greek mythology as a lens to observe the world, the book contains work which is neither rooted in time nor place. The images retell numerous myths using abstractions and metaphor to embellish and shape them in the image of the photographer’s experience.

Open in scope, the image making process is a reactionary response to surroundings, avoiding manufacturing scenarios and instead using a state of mind garnered from the consumption of mythology to bring myth to the forefront of the compositions. The work seeks to investigate and comment on the prevalence of Greek mythology within our society and the ways in which it manifests within our everyday surroundings.
