New Work

On the Route to Ruins (Series): “On the Route to Bodbe Monastery—Kakheti Highway, Georgia (2018)”

In the opening of 2018, Catherine Adams inaugurated what she calls her Peregrination Project, an ongoing photographic and writing project situating her in places and communities little known or little understood in the U.S. for historical, religious, or political reasons, such as Lebanon in Middle East or the once Soviet bloc countries in Eurasia and Central Asia.  In the first session of this project, she traveled solo for four months tracking the path of civilization from the Levant and onto the Silk Road.  While on the route to ancient and modern ruins, she encountered the contemporary development of communities and of nations as they transition out of war and old overlords.  Out of these experiences came “On the Route to Ruins: From Baalbek to Bukhara”: part documentary of contemporary life, part lyric meditation on civilization, and part light-paintings of awe.
