Untitled WalksThis body of work is about taking our traditional concepts of photo-making and dispensing with them completely. The images are created by placing negatives inside a pair of shoes and going for a walk. The shoes themselves have naturally occurring holes in them causing light leakages; the physical act of walking coupled with the repetitive bodily movements and friction creates abstract patterns on the negative. Due to the constant friction, areas of the emulsion are worn away completely emphasising the physical nature of the work and an individual narrative for each image. The indexical relationship between the landscape I walk in and the resulting images are clear to see. The images themselves become almost landscape images in their own right.
