Rationale

My work is built on the idea that photography captures a finite period of time, and renders 4-dimensional situations into 2-dimensional images. Through various media and processes I try to highlight this, whether it is through long exposures using a pinhole camera or creating images using traditional analogue processes such as lumen photography. In some pieces I incorporate layers in order to emphasise the flatness of the final pieces. In this age of instant images and digital devices to view the results, I have taken a step back in time to when photographs were crafted through physical processes and the results could be enjoyed not just for the images but as artefacts in their own right.
