STOMP
Jon CarapietStomp book cover

The photographs in STOMP, taken in Europe, India and Egypt since 2014, respond to the destruction of cultural identity and historical sites tracing back millennia, and today manifested by events from Bamiyan to Palmyra. STOMP explores themes of photographic portraiture and ‘the gaze’ in the context of destruction, questioning how we connect and identify with the other.

Since his first installation ‘Headlines’ in 1994 which featured images of a screaming Princess Diana and Prince Charles appropriated from the tabloid media, Jon Carapiet’s work has dealt with humanitarian and global themes as well as issues around portraiture, documentary photography, and the impact of technology on our ways of seeing.
