The magazine of the photo-essay
Jan 2018 back issue
Border Country
by James Clancy
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
Border Country is not a real place, but »depicts« instead an inner landscape in the mind of photographer James Clancy. He searches the outdoors for images that correspond with his own emotional states, otherwise impossible for others to grasp. In sometimes mystical-looking black-and-white photographs, Clancy shows secluded forest clearings, dilapidated dwellings that still harbor the remains of human habitation, paths leading to an unknown destination. Strange plant structures, traces of dirt, rust and dust, and the play of light and shadow create captivating invented worlds, fusing real and imagined imagery.
