After The Rain: Number 1 is a meditation via photography on nature and the lesser-heard inner voices. It started as a diary to accompany Zarina Holmes’s photography pieces, which is her train of thoughts during a hectic life between London and her seaside home near Pangkor Island. After The Rain also alludes to the feeling of calm and relief after a storm. You could say it’s about a new beginning after a turbulent passage.
After The Rain: Number 2 came three years after this journal made its debut. We’ve had a pandemic and a global supply chain crisis. In this edition, environmental calamity has a more profound co-starring role. It represents the consequences of the choices we make as humans. Darkness and light, life and death, and pastel and pop interlock with one another. But as this journal alludes, winter always turn to spring. And the rain will stop at some point.
