Nice start to 2017 a spontaneous day trip to Edinburgh to cheer up a dear friend of mine. Dull weather but a beautiful day exploring one of my favourite cities. Saw the BP portrait awards and ate lovely food all in great company.

Hoping for more travels no matter how big or small in 2017. Wishing for a succesful and positive year ahead.

Case Study: A1124NE

(Digital prints and a silent Video piece)

Case Study: A1124NE‘ is comprised of prints and a video piece which explore the possibilities of the objects, initiating dialogue on their possibilities. It can offer potential, reality or fantasy.

In presenting this work the viewer is exposed to a collection of forensic evidence gathered by a government agency, the Unidentified Objects Government Research Agency. (U.O.G.R.A) The prints carry the co-ordinates information, hinting that there is an investigative manner to the work. The prints are presented black and white and square format, evocative of the 1960’s when UFO’s were a popular phenomenon for photographs, news and media.

The video is recorded with a level of instability to exaggerate the sense of an amateur documentation whilst witnessing a forensic investigation in various locations.

The work’s philosophy experiments with putting a narrative of possibilities to everyday scenes and objects, manipulating images reminiscent of previous decades where technology and science were the answer to everything. Both technology and science have evolved making advances, offering solutions to problems but still there are unanswered questions, inexplicable findings throughout the world.

Could there be more than meets the eye with these images?

Fogged but sort of relevant

35mm colour, unfortunately fogged but actually kinda looks good! Things seem to be going very wrong at start of my current project. But as its near end now, its very different from where it started. Which I think is a good thing?

Anyway keep watching this space, result of this project will be finished and uploaded soon. Its very different looking to this tho.

Cold dark early mornings filled with the hope of some energy and creativity. First week back of my final year at Uni. I’m glad to be doing something productive and trying to be creative again. But I’m not ready for the stress and the end of it all.

Exciting projects to come though!

(Just a photo of Maurice the cat yawning for you all. I feel it too buddy)

Eryngium Flower and a Busy Bee

This is the first time I’ve tried to photograph bee’s on flowers. It was pretty difficult to get a good view of the bee and the plants. My cat was also trying to catch the bee which didn’t help.

Eryngium (Sea Holly) also known as ‘blue thistles’ are so beautiful and unusual seems the bee’s like it too.
