Ever since working with the talented Dr Josh Harle I’ve been inspired by the concept of exploring spaces.
This week a dream came true, I’ve developed and obtained the means to add another dimension to my work. What you see is a 360 image with no fixed focal point. The “rules” of photography still apply somewhat but by changing the viewing method the observer can have an immersive experience. This truly represents a new frontier for myself and countless others world wide.
In todays age of instant gratification it is easy to see why the preference runs for digital material, it is quick versatile and very share friendly.. So some time ago I aimed to bridge a gap by digitising my art, only like many of us I didn’t really like everything I was producing.
Why? I can’t ever imagine, the only advice I could ever see giving to my just turned twenty something self is generally a massive slap in the face.
None the less I spent countless hours and funds on rolls of film which I fed through several cameras of varying quality which I developed, printed and X-processed to then scan. Do I remember shooting most of these? Not entirely no… do I like them now? yes. Because to me they are honest. A slice of time that was before today.
And this is why I have now compiled them into a gallery. I solemnly swear to like my own work more from now on.
