Isabelle Hayeur: Underworlds
Isabelle Hayeur has been photographing bodies of water since 2008 – as she says, 'the turbid waters of navigation canals, troubled waters of dubious, uncertain origin'.
So often we register changes in rivers, lakes, oceans and wetlands from standing head height, rarely from the water itself, in section. Hayeur's images record the death of so many waterways de-oxegenated through pollution at a massive scale. Rather than the glittering reflective surface that is so deceptive, her work takes us below to a world both disturbed and disturbing.
