The collision of time, place, space and formmore...
I have always admired the way the drama of the ever-changing landscape evolves over time - with the shifting of light, the effect of wind, the viewing of different points of perspective. I am not content to capture one frozen moment alone but am driven to find a way of expressing the shift of time and place in that one image (without resorting to video or moving records).
Photography is generally lauded with the honour of a single click and what is captured in that brief moment, yet seeing the work of David Hockney and his photo-collages opened a whole new arena of capturing a landscape for me.
My images are a combination of many photos, taken from slightly varying angles and of course, across a short period of time. The combination of these many impressions create a juxtaposition of parts that make a whole, yet show the parts in various aspects of viewing. Clouds drift, tree limbs move, the cliche is no longer.
These images are far from collages, as they are not assembled from varied images, but assembled from aspects of the same image.
