Samples of a sequence of analogue C Print photographs, 100cm x 100cm, made between 1999 and 2001. Dioramas featuring model figures and dioramas with oil painted backdrops were constructed in the studio then photographed. Between 1952 and 1958, the British government conducted a series of nuclear test explosions on Aborigine sacred grounds of Maralinga, Australia, and the island of Kiritimati in the Pacific. The mushroom clouds in the works were transcribed from documentary photographs of these events found in the Imperial War Museum archives, London. The landscapes were worked up from sketches by a range of C18th and C19th Century landscape painters, including John Constable and JMW Turner, effectively re-positioning the clouds back to the English landscape. The figures, positioned with their backs to the viewer, emulate the positioning of both the C18th Friedrichian Rückenfigur and the anonymous military-scientific personnel seen in some of the test photographs.
