Non-fixed lumen printing with sand

As part of my Harena Now project work, I have been conducting more sand experiments with out-of-date Ilford black and white photo paper. The paler images shown below are the straight copies of the paper after I decided the 3-hour exposure would suffice, while the stronger colours of the others are created through Photoshop. The … Continue reading Non-fixed lumen printing with sand

Mike Perry – Tir/Mor (inspiration)

I have been receiving email info from Ffotogallery in Cardiff for sometime now, but one of its latest exhibitors has particularly stood out. Mike Perry is currently showing his work, Land/Sea or Tir/Mor in Welsh. It is described in the email as: Land/Sea focusses on the coastline and rugged landscapes of West Wales, where Mike … Continue reading Mike Perry – Tir/Mor (inspiration)

Challenging perception

My attention was brought to an article today (thanks Daral Brennan via Falmouth Flexible Facebook group) about Mariah Robertson, who is part of the J. P. Morgan PhotoPlay: Lucid Objects show at this week's Paris Photo. It describes her as making "making photographs the hard way", i.e. without a camera. Of course, being someone who also makes her … Continue reading Challenging perception

Week 5 – reflection (1/2)

The main tasks this week have been to develop networking opportunities. At present, due to day job commitments, I don't often have the opportunity to attend events during week-day working hours so I have concentrated on other means of networking. Although I have a list as long as my arm, I stated that for this … Continue reading Week 5 – reflection (1/2)

Atelier NL – what a discovery

At the start of my MA, I had two distinct ideas for my long-term project work. One related to the interaction and bonds between dogs and humans and the other related to geology and the human impact on the earth in our relatively short time on it. When I learnt about the sand crisis only … Continue reading Atelier NL – what a discovery

Ethereal – extremely delicate and light in a way that seems not to be of this world

It has always been my intention to create work that at first glance will draw people to it through its illusionary content; that it will beguile and bemuse. It is when a person is draw in, the meaning behind the work will be made clear, giving it power beyond its ability to captivate. Much of … Continue reading Ethereal – extremely delicate and light in a way that seems not to be of this world

Great minds – great loss

I feel a tad awkward writing this. I'm writing about a man I did not know, but wish perhaps I had. When I first set up ShutterPod five/six years ago it was always with a view that one day I could convince enough financial backers that Cornwall needed its own dedicated photographic venue, something similar … Continue reading Great minds – great loss

Finding fresh perspectives

There are so many ways to find fresh perspectives for my practice. When time allows, burying my head in books or visiting museums and art venues are great ways to learn new things and gain new insights. But, as time is often short in my often hectic everyday life, I regularly find myself saving links … Continue reading Finding fresh perspectives
