This work looks at Phenomenology, the structure of different forms of experience including perception, thought, memory, imagination, emotion and desire. Through the use of multiple exposures the work depicts joining together, combination and amalgamation of many different images of the same object, the way knowledge is built up through perceiving. This layering also allows me to capture all of the available light and shadow from the landscape, which merges together to create images that are both beautiful and mysterious. The images are created to intentionally direct your attention to something in the world
Photography is intrinsically linked to vision in the way that objects appear. The indexical way that light touches the eye, emitting from the object is the same way that light etches into the sensitive surface of film. This trace, a referent to the real object, travels to the retina/sensitive surface allowing an image to transpire. A contact print is made by the film being in direct convergence with the photographic paper suggesting the sense of touch that needs to happen in order to see, and the camera to depict.
A Lith print uses an infectious development, challenging the notion of chemically produced imagery, which is becoming increasingly sparse within photography. Selenium was used to create an image of beauty and to allow each image to be slightly different from the next.
