Sonia Payes' imagery is both commanding and elusive. Playing with the innate ability of photography to weave sublime mysteries from the obscure and the known, beauty and fear is mixed together in an intoxicating brew.

These works move through the elements of ice, earth and air, encompassing the gigantic and the microcosmic within the same ambiguous plane. They play with the theatre that photography can conjure - a cold soft cloud embraces a mountaintop high above us or maybe cool mists drift in the vast depths below.
