2016 Finalists

Joe Nigel COLEMAN

Artist statement: Peering out of an aeroplane window is something that has become commonplace in modern culture, yet I still find it to be a bizarre and unnatural experience. Coupled with this, the relationship between artificial and natural light when captured in the same frame fascinates me. The contrast in colour reveals itself in a way that cannot be seen in the moment.

My photographs are a romantic depiction of my memories, my desires, my fears; the things I’m confronted with when I dream. I aim to evoke surreal feelings in my work; feelings of wonder, uncertainty and beauty. I want the photographs I take not only to represent what I see, but also the way in which I see it.
