Beyond the Surface
A camera represents the world as flat, through the output of a photograph and compresses the space of the image. In this project I will be questioning the medium of photography through the flatness of the photographic surface. So, I have explored the concept of ‘surface tension’, that creates a discomfort and uncertainty to make us question the photographic materiality. Therefore, photographs develop their own material presence as a physical surface. These abstract photographs are stripped back to the natural elements of water and air and most basic form to provide a minimalistic perspective. The movement within the photographs, presents these textures that mimic paint strokes to recreate the feeling of staring out into the ocean.
