The Black Landscape series, part of my project Fail Deadly, originates in my collection of documents on South Africa's clandestine nuclear weapons program, which combined, culminated in the Pelindaba Collection. In trying to learn more about this part of South African history I was frustrated with the heavily redacted content, with whole pages simply covered in a black blocks. At the same time I was also busy traveling to various locations in Southern Africa and making landscape photographs where these facilities use to exist.

These works where made using an inkjet printing technique I developed of printing a layer of black over a landscape image. The technique renders a redacted landscape, in negative, the detail of which can only be seen at a certain angle.
