Description

Everyday we see things - a curtain, a wall, a vase - and pay them no mind. This is the actual; unenhanced and of significance to us only in so much as it serves some useful purpose in our daily lives. But by the time such objects make it into photographic form, they have become signposts; symbolically-charged morphemes pointing the viewer in the direction of a restricted pool of culturally-determined meanings. With this project I instead attempt to look at my environment in as straightforward and unprejudiced a manner as possible. My hope being that I might wriggle free from the cultural connotations that weigh upon our every interaction with the world and its contents. Photographs not as signposts, but as windows; views to respond to, rather than directions to follow. And yet, while I’ve tried to avoid artifice, the imposition of contrived themes, or the use of stylistic tropes, I would equally reject the suggestion that these are “documentary” photographs. Produced by means of a technological apparatus, photographs are inherently mediated impressions of external reality. But just how direct and authentic are our lived experiences of that reality in the first place? The Print: Photographic prints are digital C Type's with a white border. Proofed, handled and signed on the back by photographer. Sold in numerical order per edition (latest available) - 20 x 30 limited to 3 editions. Shipping (Prints are unframed and rolled), packaging and handling costs included in pricing. Framing can be arranged at an additional cost.
