In Pursuit of Error

2013-present

I like it when photographs go wrong.  I think this is linked to a deep suspicion about the connection between photography and ‘truth’; so when I see what the camera sees (rather than what I see, or think I see, or hope to see) I’m rather glad to have been pushed outside of the image-making process, if only for a few seconds.  Sometimes I am the architect of these ‘errors’ through some distortion of movement or focus or by simply pushing the camera beyond its normal limitations.  Sometimes not.

This interest has evolved into a practice research project which investigates the photographic ‘failure’.  More information on the work so far can be found on the project website here
