Finally finally, NEW work.
Last Friday, The Photographers Collective opened the doors on their annual exhibition, Collection 3, to a busy and earnest reception. Growing and expanding year on, this year they invited 3 photographers to showcase their work alongside them for their show. Earlier this year I was asked along and, only too flattered, set the wheels in motion to curate or shoot a new body of work for October.
D U O is what emerged from 2 years of colour film work from my small travels. Researching which project to hang for the Collection, I was in a new position. I had the opportunity to publish new work that had yet to be given a name, but I wanted something to engage with the exhibition as a whole. It has emerged nevertheless from small conspiracies. My relationship with travelling is intrinsically rooted in film in favour of digital, which I have written about already here and here. A growing archive of overlapping themes and styles from different countries has blossomed into this small study in unity.
The exhibition is open until Friday in Out Of The Blue, Dalmeny Street. An extended edit of the project is below for those who can't make the show. If it was me though I wouldn't need a reason to get my red gallery troosers out, come one come all.
