Artist statement: In my arts practice I shoot 35 mm film, documenting the everyday of Australian life, using available light, shape, tone and texture to evoke new meaning and intimacy where the presence of humans is only amplified by their absence.
Shooting analogue adds a layer to my photographic observations of the ever-changing world around us. Negatives are tangible and can’t be deleted, sitting in stark contrast to today’s screen based world.
I shot one frame at Compass Pizza that day. The image is as simple (and as complex) as my one-letter first name.
