On my last day in New York I was killing time at the Barnes & Nobel in Union Square, flipping through the book, reGeneration 2, which features various emerging photographers. There were a couple of images by Ani Kington from a time she spent in Ecuador during 2008. I really liked the image below. I guess I’m a sucker for vistas.
The series on her website titled Whatever will be, contains a mix of landscaps (both urban and rural), interiors, portraits, still lifes. The series explores the tension between the rural and rapidly urbanizing areas in Ecuador. What I really like aobut the photos is this sense that I’m present at the same moment, perceiving that bit of ordinary magic that’s out there in the world.
Additionally, Kington’s website has additional images under the section Ecuador Selects which show the same hightened sensitivity to light and context.
