“Taking a stand against the relentless drive for ever more MEGA-images that are becoming more “real” than reality, this work celebrates the imperfections of a more basic process to create evocative images that invite the viewer into them. 

Pristinely clear images from our modern cameras and phones can be scanned, appraised, re-tweeted or ignored and then forgotten. 

But an image that draws you to explore, think, imagine, can create and deposit something of value in us, that will last.”

 

This website contains lots of examples of this work together with information on the techniques and processes used to produce it, but the unavoidable digitisation  of the work flattens and distorts what is characteristic and beautiful in the actual prints.
