I designed and hand built a 20x16" ultra-large-format camera that exposes onto direct positive black and white paper. It came about through a determination to find a far more involved way of creating photographs, inspired by the craftsmanship of early photography. It is also an exploration of trying to create a unique object, each photograph produced is individual and un-reproducable . The photographs themselves are inspired by early romanticism, exploring the inner thoughts of an individual through an expressive portrait rather than trying to create an accurate representation of the outer.
