Still feel gone is a unique collaboration between Illinois natives Nathan Pearce and Tim Carpenter. Essentially two books in one, the work of the two photographers is presented separately; yet the pictures of each are in intimate dialogue with one another. Two sides of the same coin, if you will.
Nathan and Tim chose a common motif - the railroad - to articulate shared feelings on landscape and longing. For the ceaseless desire to be other and elsewhere, wherever it is that the real and the ideal collapse into one. For the life you want but have never known, as the song goes.
And yet, we make our peace with what we have. We find - or rather, we create - a home in this world. It could not be otherwise. A fictive covering weaves always glistening from the heart and mind, as the poet says.
