Carried Away is an art project by photographer Sara Arnald that will develop over time from 20 December 2010 until 25 February 2011. It will start out as a photoblog, but will after travels through Southeast Asia and Australia be presented as an exhibition.
The Carried Away project deals with an undefined feeling of restlessness, an always present wanderlust. It’s an ongoing search that creates an “archive” of feelings and experiences.
Sara Arnald works mainly in the field of conceptual photography, but she has over a few years been photoblogging on www.50percentgray.net. The blog has been an outlet for images outside projects and series. “This new project is a completely new way for me to work, requiring me to let go of planning and control. I will instead need to act on a series of impulses”, says Sara Arnald. “I will be travelling through areas with difficult weather conditions and therefore I need sturdy, reliable equipment. But I still need good technical quality, and I found the perfect partner in Phase One. I’ve been using their equipment in a number of previous projects, but never for blog pictures – it may seem like overkill to use such a grand camera for online purposes. But as I plan to make large prints of the images later, I just need top quality.”
Jan H. Christiansen, Phase One Marketing Director says: “We have chosen to support Sara’s project, as it is truly contemporary and relevant. The project also shows that Phase One’s camera systems can be used to create fantastic images outside the studio.”
Carried Away will be active from 20 December 2010 until 25 February 2011 at the following address: www.carriedaway.se
