Apple tree in garden

Work in progress

Experimenting with different subjects setting off the camera.  Apples falling, breaking the beam and triggering the shot. Thinking of Newton’s apple and chains of events – minor events influencing larger.  Working on new projection / film for open studio in November –  thestudionotebook.blogspot.com

The Photographers’ Gallery Commission

Test set up for commission for The Photographers’ Gallery World in London project using Heather McDonough’s cat – who set the shutter off by moving through the infra red trigger.  The final images will be released as part of the overall project next year.  More info – thephotographersgallery.org.uk.
