night swans – this table is sad because no one is sitting at it

“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.” 

This series employs a twin lens photographic technique, to record a parallax effect that forces a continual re-evaluation of the everyday transitory moment

This is a really personal body of work, so I’m very pleased that LensCulture have included it.  Here’s a link to my project on the gallery (until End Nov 2017), and here’s a link to the work in my LensCulture Portfolio, along with some of my other projects.

You can also buy a 48 page book of the full series of images, printed on high quality pearl paper, through blurb.

Another juxtaposition

A few of my photographs have been included in the tumblr blog: black mountain mass.  The blog presents passages of text alongside photographs and other artists images found on the internet. It’s a great site to lose yourself in.

My images, from ‘this table is sad…‘ and ‘I Keep Diamonds…‘, have been placed with lines from John Tyndall’s ‘The Glaciers of the Alps’.

Here are the posts (click through them to get to the blog):

this table is sad because no one is sitting at it – time based film for projection

“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.
