Volcanic stones from active volcano Piton de la Fournaise, Reunion Island, East coast of Africa

Untilted are photographs of volcanic stones I collected on the top of the active volcano Piton de la Fournaise (Reunion Island, East coast of Africa).
The overlapping of the scribbles and rocks breaks down the illusion of depth of the photograph and confronts two shapeless objects. Both emerged from a burning desire, the volcano violently lets go of its insides and the drawer lets out emotions, thoughts, frustrations on the paper with an uncontrolled and unpredictable gesture.
