If you’ve been to a paintball session, you’ll recognise the crazed, action-packed and normally freezing lark around in the mud that appeal to so many. As the inevitable dodging of bullets falters and your retaliation has sapped all ammunition, the place to be is behind cover, blending in with the unusual landscapes created to feed the frenzied Rambo fray.
As this pseudo war runs its course, the battlegrounds cease to be at the blow of a whistle, leaving only Traces of what was. And this is the focus of Maria Moore’s photographic series that captures the unique landscapes made up of largely obsolete objects in isolation, devoid of the thrillseeking warriors that give them purpose. All that remains with any viewer is the remnants of a scenario, the echoes of laughter and the pat-pat of air powered guns.
