THE ICE PLANT

Tim Carpenter: Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road


Featured image is reproduced from 'Tim Carpenter: Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road.'

In Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road, his second book with The Ice Plant, Brooklyn-based photographer Tim Carpenter (born 1968) revisits the Central Illinois topography of his first monograph, Local Objects, with a sequence of 56 black-and-white, medium-format photographs, all made on a single winter morning. Where Local Objects meandered this semi-rural Midwestern landscape through changing seasons, detached from time, here Carpenter follows a straightforward path, literally taking the viewer on a chronological two-hour walk from point A to point B. Nothing much happens along this brief narrative arc—there are fallow fields, standing water, dormant trees, the occasional tire track on worn pavement—yet Carpenter explores the stillness of this outdoor space with an intensity of attention, a lightness of touch and a palpable, almost erotic longing, discovering complex subtleties at every turn.

In 'Tim Carpenter: Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road,' loneliness is an absolute discovery

Featured image is reproduced from Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road, The Ice Plant’s new photography book by Tim Carpenter. Collecting 56 duotone images made over the course of a two-hour walk, the book conveys silence and forest sounds, stillness and motion, time and timelessness. Featuring a monochromatic debossed cover image printed onto textured paper, it’s certainly an object of contemplation. No essays tell you what to think or see. But one quote from Marilynne Robinson does appear on the colophon page: “Because, once alone, it is impossible to believe that one could ever have been otherwise. Loneliness is an absolute discovery.” continue to blog
