Light Sensitivity

This is a light sensitised piece of paper from my sketchbook (very small sketch book, Approx A6). I love the involvement of my painterly techniques that liquid light sensitising allows. It resembles an organic type of conversation between my ‘painter’ and ‘photographer’ side. This is all too inevitable I feel.. I’m enjoying the collaboration of both sides.. At the moment I am pushing this experience into a more ‘intrusive’ environment where I am marrying the two worlds together. Does/Will it work?? I am pushing my boundaries so I guess I have answered my question..

This is my son Aaron on sketchbook paper.

My Ghost

This was a series of selfportrait images titled My Ghost. I was curious about how ‘absence’ can affect the familiarity of the surrounding environment. An absence of the physical or a fading memory.
