Selah

2020
Archival pigment print
20 x 20 inches
Edition of 10, signed sticker on verso

Selah is a word found as a refrain intermittently throughout The Book of Psalms, as an offer to meditate on what was just said. Rastafarian culture also uses this word as a sort of “Amen." It has also been interpreted as meaning “forever.” By titling this photograph Selah, Granville Carroll uses the malleability of the word to open up new meanings and possibilities. The photograph shows a mountainous desert landscape at night, the sky above filled with stars. The site becomes communal and collective: an offer to think about events that have occurred, and those that have yet to come; a kind of benediction for all those who view this image.

Granville Carroll is a visual artist currently based in Rochester, NY. Carroll holds a Masters of Fine Art (2020) in photography and related media from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Carroll’s work is influenced by Afrofuturism and spirituality.
