MAGNOLIA MINTON SPARKE
‘For as long as I can remember my mother used these words to calm me down, to sign off text messages and to wish me farewell before I left the safety of her home. In the presence of chaos or uncertainty, head towards stillness. Go Gently.
In the thick of a precarious year, taken between San Francisco, Sydney and Maitland, these photographs latch on to fleeting moments of placidity where quiet is found in the familiar and the foreign. This series acts as a visual reminder; get out of your head, take note of your surroundings, keep moving, take your time. Go gently.’
