MARE MAGNVM: VLTRAMARINI XII
MARE MAGNVM: VLTRAMARINI
"One night, a storm blew over us. The waves came alive, tossing the raft around. But the old lady just rocked back and forth, singing lullabies to us as the rain came down. Somehow, the songs let me know we were safe. And look at us—we were."
VLTRAMARINI, or “those beyond the sea,” now stands in as a moment in-between, continuing to expand the MARE MAGNVM world. The collection is made up of 15 unique images that show the passengers arriving at a coastline. Seen altogether, the works form a sprawling panorama of their landfall. This moment, fraught with danger but still teeming with triumph, is fractured, indicating the variety of perspectives tied into the same event. Each image provides a view of the Vltramarini as their ocean voyage ends and a new leg of their quest begins.
