Why lumen?

Harena Now, my MA project, has evolved into being created with a non-fixed lumen process and digital manipulation. I have opted to show five pieces at my first show on June 22. I also wanted the images created to be as large as my budget would allow. On this occasion that is A1 on the … Continue reading Why lumen?

Lia Halloran – more inspiration

I really thought I had written about Lia Halloran's work before this, particularly her project, Your Body is a Space that Sees. I adore her use of the cyanotype process in these large-scale images (see Figs. 1 and 2) that have been made to showcase the impact women have had in astronomy since the distant … Continue reading Lia Halloran – more inspiration

Noemie Goudal and new ideas

One of the best things about taking this MA is learning about other artists; thank you Wendy (McMurdo, my module tutor) for introducing me to Noemie Goudal. Goudal's work at first glance, for me, was perhaps not the type of imagery that would make me want to linger. Perhaps that's because the first images I … Continue reading Noemie Goudal and new ideas

Royal Photographic Society Environmental Bursary

To help me to develop my practice following my MA, and to continue with Harena Now (which I think has more longevity), I have applied for the Royal Photographic Society's Environmental Bursary (run in conjunction with The Photographic Angle). This bursary seeks¬†photographic projects that promote environmental awareness, which Harena Now most certainly does. When I … Continue reading Royal Photographic Society Environmental Bursary

Andy Hughes – interview

I approached Andy Hughes as part of my plans to interview other photographers working in an environmental context. Andy is probably best known for his work (since the 90s) to raise awareness about our use of plastic, and has produced books such as Dominant Wave Theory and Gyre: The Plastic Ocean. I wanted to find … Continue reading Andy Hughes – interview

Gina Glover – interview

Thank you, Gina. I had a wonderful chat with Gina Glover about her work and her thoughts on what she feels makes people tick when it comes to environmental photography. I have spoken about Gina's work in a previous post; how it has a timeless appeal and how I felt it reflected some of my … Continue reading Gina Glover – interview

Michelle Rozic

After having discussed with my tutor my plan not to include my cyanotype work in my Harena Now exhibitions, I decided to take another look at artists who have used the process in the past for their nature-related shows. One of these is Michelle Rozic, an Associate Professor of Art, Printmaking Area Coordinator and Visual … Continue reading Michelle Rozic

Shape of Light

If I can't get to London by October 14, then please Tate Modern bring the Shape of Light to Tate St Ives. This is one of those exhibitions I would love to see in person. Described as the first time the Tate Modern "tells the intertwined stories of photography and abstract art" from the past … Continue reading Shape of Light

art.earth callout

Although there is much to do for my final major project, I am keen to look beyond the August deadline and apply for opportunities that will enable me to continue to develop and grow as a photographic artist. Having joined art.earth (described on the website as: a family of artists and organisations whose work focusses … Continue reading art.earth callout

Daisuke Yokota

In trying to keep abreast of contemporary photographers, I have come across the work of Daisuke Yokota. It is his experimental attitude to his work that impresses me, and it seems in recent years many other too as he has been the winner of the 2016 Foam Paul Huf Award and the PhotoLondon John Kobal … Continue reading Daisuke Yokota
