Since starting to teach Photography in the area, I have been drawn to ways I can create through new photographic methods. When my partner bought me an old Polaroid 104 Camera, I was hooked on the idea of icreating images and capturing my travels instantaneously . Travellling has been a strong part of my work for a number of years, it has always taken me back to my photographic work and made me reconnect with my craft.
The book starts in the new year, experimenting with double exposure, going through to places of significance in my past and future. The words accompanying each section are thoughts and captions that remind me of each location. Each image holds it's own story but together share much more, a reawakening from the mound of paper work life had become.
I strongly believe to teach a subject you must be active within it. As I don't have the hours to lovingly spend in my darkroom, the fact I can show my students my methods of working and capture their imaginations through my unorthodox alterations means I have succeeded in my mission to excite, create and stimulate the imagination of others.
