Zahid Jiwa is a photographer and filmmaker currently based between London and New York City.

With TERRAIN VAGUE, we find ourselves trailing Zahid Jiwa in his attempts to define “Mediterraneanism.” Seamlessly collapsing his wanderings through France and Italy into a single essence of being, his images, created over a five week period in the Summer months of 2015, are at once a study in luxurious experience and bodily decay, the region’s ubiquitous antiquarian symbols, and paradisiacal spaces that promise immanence but in the final analysis provide something more indeterminate. We are invited, through photographs, to observe some of his activity and interaction with the region.
