tactile image

paper making: i took a break from darkroom processes and got started on some paper making. i have been meaning to get back to this process for some time and today seemed like the day to do it. i think i just wanted some physical and messy making. i kept things simple - using off-cuts,...

pinhole camera continued

lensless image making continued:i am still working away on analogue and wet processes - processes that attempt to connect landscape as experience to landscape as image in some physical way and adds haptic qualities to the visual and body to the image. i recognise the gendered reading of these processes and continue to explore nonetheless...

through a slow lens

photographic work continued: wasn't feeling the best so thought i'd stay close to home. only venturing out for some fresh air, i did manage to do some gathering and ended up returning to some slow shutter speed shots which seemed to fit with the general mood. some shots ... gathering continued: snow came and went...

Lensless image making continued

photograms: i have continued to work away in my darkroom this week - using more found objects from my walks. i am getting a better sense of timing for their exposure and development and longer exposure times seem to work best for these opaque and semi-opaque objects and shadows. i plan on continuing to explore...

photograms: landscape without lens

setting up a darkroom: i managed to get some equipment together here in tipp so i can start developing images using analogue and non-lens photographic processes. as we are in highest level lockdown restictions, i am happy with anything at all. i just have the chemicals here for paper developing so that means working with...

returning to the horizon

returning: there are many areas i want to develop further and this weekend i was open to what ever direction that would take. i dont expect to reach any end point - probably ever, but just make steps further along these routes. so this last weekend i ended up experimenting with the horizon and ways...

slowish studio day

a bit of this and that: i was pretty tired before i began any work in the studio today and it took some time to settle into anything. instead of tackling any work which needs a lot of energy, i started by looking through open calls, checking in with the VAi and making a list... Continue Reading →
