Jim Campers Forward Escape Into The Past

Idea Code 18401


This volume is published on the occasion of the first solo exhibition of Belgian photographer Jim Campers in Amsterdam. Countercultures of the 1960s and ’70s form the starting point of his photographic series, in which he refers to anarchist social criticism and theories about the history of psychedelics. Through his work, which uses photography to visualise prehistoric times, we realise how topical these radical ideas might still be. Stunning images of petroglyphs, ancient rocks, enigmatic technological objects, and weathered desert landscapes combine to form a narrative of both wonder and lament for a shared past, before civilisation decimated our ancestral community groups.
