Canto 1: The Dark Forest - Now Online
The three photographs in the series “Canto I: The Dark Forest” were made in Northern New Mexico, USA, in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. They take the viewer into the woods, leaving them in a dark interior, one created by the natural world. It is a space of transformation, a meeting place between worlds. Clear, visually simple, these photographs leave the viewer on the threshold.

New hand-bound artist’s book in-progress
The project Summer Grasses is becoming an artist’s book.
(hand-bound artist book, 35 x 288 x 1 cm (un-folded), 2018)
The photographs are from Huddleston’s third pilgrimage, the 700 kilometer route from Le Puy-en-Velay to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the south of France. They show changes in the land, light, weather, and in the mood and spirit during thirty-four days of walking. The book tells of an irregular beauty and a provisional grace, that of the fallow field, the hedgerow and the marvelous enchantment of an imperfect reality.
