Weather Permitting - 12 Monks and 16 Islanders. A photographic journey
Ilse Wolf travelled to Caldey, a miniscule island off the coast of Wales, armed only with a pen and a camera. A unique book originated, that simply by it's serene design captures the atmosphere on the island. With no internet connection or telephone,
‘This whole weather permitting-thing is driving me mad. You can’t guarantee anything.’
Without telephone and internet access she travelled to Caldey Island, a small island off the coast of Wales. A journey in which she left behind the control freak and telephone addict and in which she looked for solitude.
The 23-year-old documentary photographer Ilse Wolf studied photography at the Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp. Then she continued her studies at AKV St. Joost in Breda, the Netherlands, where she got her bachelor degree in photography. ‘Weather Permitting’ is her graduation project. Like her other projects it started as a personal quest. What is loneliness? Does that even exist? She wondered what it would be like to escape from the fast consumer’ssociety. To be really alone. To just see what the day will bring you. To be dependent on nature.
