This image is part of a series that explores the story of Shakespeare’s Ophelia, made in response to studying previous artistic interpretations of the text. Combining underwater digital photography with alternative printing methods, this series studies the destruction and turmoil that lies beneath the romanticism and serenity suggested in traditional representations of her fate, both in image and process.
After creating these underwater photographs I repeatedly printed and re-photographed them using lo-fi techniques to simultaneously intensify and degrade the images. Whilst the title image is a composite of two photographs, the remainder are all single full frame images. In the final stage I used out-of-date Polaroid film to make water-based emulsion lifts onto textured watercolour paper; the destructive yet delicate nature of the process continuing the themes of the subject matter.

Do You Like Love? is showing as part of the Photomonth East London Photography Festival.
“I find myself repeatedly passing through my life without actually engaging with it, going through the motions but my mind elsewhere. When I am lost in my inner thoughts those inhabiting the outer world around me disappear, and I too cease to exist. My awareness of this state creates a duality of experience through which I struggle to re-engage with the present.”
Created using every day colour films and high street developing labs, this projection series employs a twin lens photographic technique to record a parallax effect that forces a continual re-evaluation of the everyday transitory moment.
‘this table is sad because no one is sitting at it’ is intended for exhibition both as a large scale projection and an intimate book.
Available either in softcover, hardcover with dust jacket, all hard cover with image wrap, all printed with Proline Pearl photographic paper. Prices start at £24.73 (+VAT and delivery) for the softcover.

The Free Space Gallery, Kentish Town is currently hosting a solo exhibition of my photographic based work! Running until 9th October, Interpretations features prints from 4 bodies of work:
Each series uses a different photographic/printmaking technique to study the passing of time from different emotional viewpoints.
As well as showing prints from each series, I am also showing a book of images for ‘this table is sad because no one is sitting at it’. This is the first time that I am exhibiting this work so I’m particularly excited.
The exhibition is open Monday-Friday, 9am-6.30pm until 9th October.
On Friday 4th September there will also be an open evening, from 6.30-9pm where I will also be showing projections of ‘Chasing Shadows’ and ‘this table is sad because no one is sitting at it’. Copies of the book will also shortly be available for sale – watch this space for more info.
