Danish photographer Alexander Arnild Peitersen’s monograph From Now On is a fragmented reflection on times that have passed, depicted in an array of monochrome and colour images captured using multiple camera formats over a period of six years. While focusing on themes such as transition and memory, and investigating issues like isolation, alienation, and nature, the work also inhabits a space of mysticism and poetry. It can be read as stories, rituals, or attempts to map out the necessities needed to survive as a human being. Scenes of landscapes, hunting, dancing, drinking, and the unforgiving reality of nature’s dominance all interweave in Peitersen’s set of images.
“Photography has always been a variable for me, something that changes all the time. When I take a photograph, it’s something else three days later. It is never what I set out to do. I am very careful with trying to narrow down what I want with my work, but it has always been closely associated with poetry, something that is fluid, quite simply. You can look at it one day and feel one thing and look at it another day and feel something else. It is open to interpretation.” – Alexander Arnild Peitersen
