Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed - Garry Winogrand
I chose the 6x6 ratio for this collection, because this framing draws the eye towards the subject without peripheral distraction. It compresses the viewer’s attention more intensely on the specific subject and invites contemplation of it.
I have deliberately chosen images that have an evocative, dream-like or romantic quality, where vectors lead the viewer deeply into the image to make meanings beyond what is evident. The sequence of images suggests a journey punctuated by indifferent presences and marked absences. A journey of intense seeking and almost, but not quite, finding.
This compilation was shot on Ilford film using mainly Hasselblad 500cm and Fujifilm GF670 cameras, from Switzerland, to Sri Lanka, London, Japan, Iceland, the Arctic and Australia.
