"This beautiful fortified village in the north of France used to be a thriving 19th century commercial hub, but when I arrived, on that warm summer afternoon, the town was practically empty and still. I had to climb over a small railing to enter the abandoned chateau near the water's edge and once inside it was a dark and dusty adventure, leading to a huge array of dusty books, historical magazines and a beautiful display of silk flowers by the shuttered up windows. After enjoying this incredible location, I sat in one of the village bandstands and enjoyed a slice of pizza and a cold can of pop from a van which had parked up there. I found it quite bizarre, the contrast of the time capsule chateau and the modern takeaway break" Salle D'Etude is part of acclaimed photographer Gina Soden’s series – How Long Is Now (2020). This is a series that plays with a powerful paradox. At first glance, the viewer might think the photographs only depict the past: past dreams, past lives, past structures. In fact, Soden’s work really talk about the present and our perception of passing time. This series pushes the viewer into a profound reflection about the meaning of time, and our understanding of the present moment — of Now Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm Giclee print, a premium quality paper, which is perfect for Gina Soden's brightly coloured and textured images. Fine Art Baryta paper has a similar foundation to that used in the past in traditional silver fibre prints. The paper's unique glossy Baryta surface lends itself perfectly to saturated colour images. Edition of 15 with 2 A/P's. Gina Soden personally prints and check the artwork in her studio. It will then be packaged and rolled in a tube sent by courier. Size includes 2cm border so it is ready for framing. With your artwork there will be a signed & numbered certificate of authenticity. This can be affixed to the back of the print when framed.

Gina Soden, artist and photographer, is available at Wychwood Art. At the heart of Gina Soden’s photography is a preoccupation with abandoned structures and locations. Based in London, she travels widely to undisclosed sites throughout Europe and explores the boundaries of beauty, decay, nostalgia and neglect. The genesis of each piece is often the unique architectural character of each location, heightened by their painfully slow transformation after years of abandonment.
