This Continuing body of work is exploring light and locations. The locations have been places where I have lived or made a personal connection to. I aim to capture the light and movement of the subject matter. I choose Polaroids (fuji fp) as a medium as it allows myself to exploit the unpredictable nature of the process to capture a unique outcome.
This Gallery shows the early selection of Polaroids taken between 2013 and the present day. The variation between the colours and accuracy of the detail with in the images is due to the aged films and the experimentation with a number of old cameras, lens and filters to capture the atmosphere of each site.
Through this Gallery there are examples of the alternative process photography work I have created during my practice. In particular Cyanotype which I have worked along side Laura Bridges to create two large scales books for the exhibition Building Volumes as part of the FAB (Fringe Arts Bath) festival held in 2014.
A brief view of the Black and White Pinhole work created during MA studies in Aberystwyth. These images were created as part of an exploration tour of the Uk retiring to locations where I had lived or visited that left a lasting impression on me. Using the medium of Pinhole i explore the uses of light and the stark contrast between the details of the architecture and its environment.
This Gallery shows the Pinhole images created using a Blender pinhole camera. Taken in a number of locations these images explore the use of colour movement and light. During the process I used my own heart beat as a timing method. due to this timing method each image has an emotional connection to the location and my reaction to that place.
The collection of work displayed in this Gallery is from the Tabernacle Project, these images were taken weeks before the Tabernacle Chapel on Mill Street Aberystwyth was tragically burnt down. these images showed the building in its stripped and broken state. With Access to the building I began a study with focused on how the light reacted with the circus of the original structure. using 35mm, 120mm and digital images to try and show the beautiful details left in this historic building.
