Black Rainbow is a documentary project that looks at how agriculture changes from high-tech to low-tech in different places. In particular, using portraits, landscapes and details to show a certain sense of place or belonging in each location. The photographs are anchored in my travels, which have so far extended to Tunisia, Germany, Spain and several different locations in the UK. Agriculture is a vital part of a functioning society but remains mostly hidden from public view. This project comes from a personal desire to connect with the way of life that my family has come from and to push myself to see and experience that which we are hidden from in everyday life."
My name is Ebyan Rezgui and I’m a German-Tunisian photographer born and based in London. I’ve spent the last 8 months travelling and shooting for my current project in between my responsibilities for university. My work is documentary in nature but avoids any strong social and political agendas. I prefer to make photographs that give the viewer a feeling of the subject and allow them to draw their own conclusions. However, I also don’t believe that photographs can be wholly objective- my work is rooted in the way I see and my love for the natural world. I am drawn to subjects that take me out into the world and force me to question my understanding of it
