First Light – from Eos to Helios
For Bennett, the point of being in a natural environment is in being there. His photographs are pointers to show what you are probably missing. Eos is the Greek god of the pre-dawn, sister to the sun god Helios, granddaughter of Gaia. Experiencing Eos gives some sense of a world before farming, roads or cities, before writing, wheels, electricity or algorithms. Eos is an opportunity to become intimate with the traditional elements of earth, air, water, light, life and death.
