An “erratic” is a rock that has been transported by a glacier to somewhere far from its native environment. When the ice melts, it is left there, out of place.

In this series of photos and sculptures, Darren Harvey-Regan went from the White Cliffs of Dover to Egypt’s Western Desert.

In the desert he photographed natural chalk formations that had been scratched and shaped by wind and sand over centuries. In England he collected coarse lumps of chalk that had crumbled off the cliff face. He made them into sculptures by carving them with a razor blade and shaping them with sandpaper before placing them on plinths.

The series of photographs and sculptures are the subject of a book from RVB Books
