Studies in Desolation continues Karin Bubaš‘s study of women in landscapes. However this series gets its inspiration from apocalyptic visions of earth as seen in 1970s science fiction films such as Logan’s Run. Each picture shows a woman with her face turned away from the camera in a rocky terrain with an “other-worldly” quality to it. These lunar-like settings create mysterious and captivating narratives. For example, Silversword Seascape depicts a woman in a turquoise dress staring into a foggy abyss surrounded by strange sea-urchin-like plants. The ongoing series explores the solitary and occasionally frightening relationship that exists between woman and nature.
