An island photographer has opened a solo exhibition online sparked by her experiences over the Covid-19 pandemic.

Island Rock Fever, created by Meredith Andrews, includes nine “provocative” photographs.

Ms Andrews said: “Being detached on a remote island for an extended period introduced a surreal element to the works, a representation of my mindset over the past two years.

“Under the custody of the island, something much larger than myself, I was grounded, liberated, and frustrated.”

She added: “Island Rock Fever is an expression of my Bermuda experience before and during the global pandemic.”

Ms Andrews explained: “This series of ‘islandscapes’ explores a fundamental physical connection with Bermuda’s botanical, terrestrial and marine surroundings.

“The island’s elements are beautiful yet raw, large yet small and one often simultaneously feels isolated and exposed in the subtropical surroundings.”

The images include Ambushed, Obscure and Absorption and show female subjects in unusual positions in distinct environments.

Ms Andrews said: “The restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic intensified feelings of remoteness, which I often express as obscurement, concealment, or assimilation.

“The island and the individual become one, protecting and combating at the same time.”

The exhibition is featured on the Black Pony Gallery launched by Lisa Howie, a former director of the Bermuda National Gallery.
