Edification

Edification is an exploration of the impact of technology on society. The intention of this serie is to provide a visual narrative of faith in a digital future in which humanity teeters on the cusp of fully merging with technology. Through his photographs, Alun Be extends an invitation to an open discourse on the fate of humankind. While the subjects photographed are specific to the African continent, the nine themes explored can be understood as universal rites of passage. Alun’s photographs build upon themselves and crescendo in a thought-provoking anachronism. The result offers a series of ethereal images between mise en scène photography and eschatological prophecies.
