New collaborative project underway

still life photography

Fellow artist Anne Guest and I collaborate on photography based projects together. In theory this is an ongoing process; in practice we usually cobble something together when there’s a deadline looming… In 2019 we were fortunate to have a body of work displayed in the Elysium Gallery as part of the ESPY Photographic Awards and so with a new call on the horizon we have started work on a new series.

We’re looking at non-native plants and their importance as markers for us at the start of spring in the English garden. This is Forsythia, originally native to China and Korea. This is the first stage, we’re looking at producing stained cyanotype prints as the final presentation but plenty of experimentation to get through in the meantime.
