GHOST MOMENTS

PHOTOGRAPHY SERIES

2014

Each strobosopic photograph represents one second of time. How that moment is divided up depends on the strobe rate. These images were created as part of the visual research for the documentary film below. Punctum Temporis asks the metaphysical question, what is 'the moment', and does it even exist?

SELF-LANDSCAPES

PHOTO BOOK

2014

Self-Landscapes began by accident. An otherwise perfect photograph of the city ruined by my shadow, or my reflection in some window, invading the frame without permission. Then I began to take these "selfies" deliberately. I became fascinated by them. They seemed to defy categorisation. They were not landscape or street photography in the strictest sense, neither were they self portraits, the usual explorations of identity. With my face obscured by the camera in almost every shot, my identity was only 'photographer'. The act of photography itself was being photographed, and therefore in some way interrogated.
