These are some of the prints I produced in the darkroom this term; my photography work is quite separate to my interests in sculpture. These photos are produced from an experimental idea; I wanted to expose compositions of pure light onto an image in a very controlled way - so that parts of the image are unseen and overexposed, they were quite difficult to produce because I had to try and keep track of where the current exposures were on the papers. I wanted to be as in much control of the outcome as I could possibly be, and it proved really difficult.
The compositions of light on paper are interesting. The exposures negotiate space, there’s a relationship between positive and negative spaces. And they make the audience aware of a relationship between camera and darkroom processes. In this case the process is made apparent as a type of collage.
