Chasing Shadows is a night journey – a sleepwalk through a silent world bereft of people. As the quality of evening light transforms the everyday into a dreamlike state, familiar urban landscapes disappear underneath resilient vegetation.
Long exposure night photographs are hand printed using a lith technique (an alternative wet printing process) to create a degraded aesthetic closer to illustration than photography. The very nature of the process ensures that each image is visually unique, and in this instance the choice of a now discontinued fibre based paper enforces a single edition body of work.
