Shot underwater, the photographs are made into Polaroid 669 prints and soaked in a hot water bath to lift the emulsion containing the image from the paper beneath. The emulsion is then floated onto water colour paper and arranged into position. The very nature of the process continues the theme of the subject matter, and ensures that each original handmade print is completely unique in its tones and arrangement.
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.
