Meridian

Simon Johnston, 2016
44 pages, board cover
published by Steidl, Germany

Photographs of England taken along the line of zero degrees longitude. Using a large format camera, and gps technology to establish accurate locations, photographs were taken on the prime meridian line from coast to coast, facing either due north or due south. A vertical fluorescent orange line superimposed on the center of the tritone images represents the line of zero degrees longitude, transgressing the conventional purity of the picture plane, and mirroring how we superimpose a rational grid over the globe to regulate space, time, trade and navigation.
