The eminent landscape photographer Chris Friel has turned his gaze to a small empty hospital room which held him for 100 days after his son died. The images are the opposite of landscapes; the viewer is not even sure there is a window, and the faint glimpses of raindrops or a row of faint trees appear and disappear like hallucinations.
Friel’s art transubstantiates an empty room into a container of meaning. These images reach out to us
