This photograph is included in the series "Big Sur". Below you'll find the artist's own description of the work:
"The images from Big Sur National Park.
They are created as a still-image representation of Jack Kerouac‘s quest to illustrate in writing the sounds of the ocean in his novel “Big Sur”.
My images are illustatuions of the phonetic words he invented while standing in the breaks at Big Sur.
Like Kerouac, I seek to capture in two-dimensions the ever-changing nature of a roaring wave crashing against the ancient rocks.
Is it possible to hear an image? Can you hear these images? What does sound look like?"
Born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1974, Jacob Felländer studied fine art photography and graphic design at
Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida and then at San Diego State University.
He began experimenting with landscape photography in the late 2000s, and by 2005 he had perfected using
relic film cameras to capture multiple exposures in a single image.
Felländer is widely known for his large-scale abstract photographs of cityscapes and landscapes, captured
from around the world. In 2011, Felländer exhibited I Want To Live Closer To You at Fotografiska in
Stockholm. He travelled around the world's most densely populated cities over twelve days, experimenting in
capturing the entire world on a single, multi-exposed negative; the result is an effective movement of fleeting
fragments of time, space and perspective seized from each city.
In 2012 Felländer began to investigate the introduction of drawing and painting - challenging their
relationship with photography. His latest work has been shown at Hamiltons Gallery in London and Camera
Work in Berlin.
Felländer's works are held in a number of prestigious collections, including those of Bill and Hillary Clinton
and the Kennedy Family.
