In astronomy, an “event horizon” delineates the area around a black hole beyond which events can no longer be observed from the outside: objects which reach this point will seem to float indefinitely, unmoored from time and space. Quentin Lacombe’s book Event Horizon is a personal response to this phenomenon, in which everything in his images (organic matter, animals, and inanimate and architectural objects) appears to drift along an endless horizon line. Photography, digital manipulation, and collage are used by the artist to build his personal cosmology.
