CHAPTER 1 – STARS FELL ON ALABAMA

Curated by Stefania Rossl and Massimo Sordi

Stars Fell on Alabama is the first chapter in Regine Petersen‘s series on meteorites, titled “Find a Falling Star”. It is a configuration of archive press cuttings, eye witness reports, interview transcripts, genealogy and found images, fleshed out with quiet, contemplative photographs taken in the field.

She began the project in 2009, having chanced on the story of the Hodges meteorite. What began as an investigation into a single stone, though, has branched into a lightning rod touching memory, history, magic and mortality; human relationships and religion; race, slavery and colonialism. It also considers the practice of storytelling itself – whether an author/photographer can tell a story without casting their own shadow over its content. text by Lucy Davies.
