I am currently studying a BA (Hons) Photography degree at UCA Farnham in Surrey.
The core of my practice focuses on photography’s materiality by using historic and alternative processes to create unique tangible photographic objects.
The number of screen images we consume on a daily basis emphasises the loss of the materiality within photography and in turn could be said to result in a loss of experience and understanding.
Engaging with the photographic object, rather than solely the photographic image opens up discussions around the limitations of photography as a purely visual medium.
Field Memories explores the changing perception of our memory, from first person memories into observer memories.
The project revisits important places from my childhood whilst working with expired instant film and the emulsion transfer process. By producing multiple images within a short time frame emphasises the transition between each individual moment and the passing of time. The process creates a unique final photograph in the landscape it was taken, creating a stronger connection to the place itself.
This series investigates the unfixed nature of memory and the removal from the original event. Romanticising both memories and place.
