Beka Globe – Photographer
Beka Globe began taking photographs of Harris when she was 11 years old. She studied photography and darkroom techniques at Napier University in Edinburgh. There she was inspired by Ansel Adams’ landscapes, Paul Strand’s portraits and Hiroshi Sugimoto’s seascapes. Having traveled extensively with her camera, she returned to the Hebrides to explore her roots in the landscape she first viewed through the lens. Here she captures an emotive vastness, depth and simplicity. Her silent images are deeply moving, stirring a particular sense of place.
Land, Sea and Sky
The shoreline is a unique place of convergence where elements of earth, air and water meet the human mind perceiving them. It’s a territory where we are confronted by the enormity and sheer force of Nature, the eternal movement of waves, winds and tides, shaping ancient stone, eroding fragile sands and immovable mountains. Standing on the edge of vast, unknown depths of ocean or lochs mirroring the infinite sky, human scale and time are transformed.
This liberating state of stillness and heightened awareness shifts perception and we begin to see the world and ourselves in a differentlight. Although not obviously populated by human figures, Humanity is always present in Beka Globe’s framing of land and seascape, actively placing the viewer in the foreground.
Her approach to composition is one of the great joys of her Art, leading the viewer imaginatively into the frame to experience the core of the subject for ourselves. In these uniquely captured moments time is stopped and we are able to explore a different state of being to the ever accelerating spin of everyday life.
