I search for very public and engaging locations and then I shoot a number of frames from one vantage point. By adding an amount of manipulation to the photographs later – specifically, by combining several scenes and overlaying them to create one image comprising several moments – the experience of the single documentary instant is multiplied, letting the viewer feel the movement and passing of time through the photo, in this case the clouds above our heads. By having one or more stationary elements in each execution (a stature, a building etc), where all the colours come together in black and white, I give the viewer a sense of place. We are not in the clouds, but down on the earth looking up.

 

All images are available in two sizes, 24" x 36" for $800 unmounted, or 16.5" x 29" for $400 unmounted. Limited editions of 3.

 

Archival pigment prints.
