Field Recording: An Examination of Photography as Process and Premise.
Brief synopsis: A theoretical re-imagination of photography that delves into ways of thinking and making photographs. The project was developed as a handmade artist book with a series of photographs and essays. It has now been published as a hardcover book.
The Field Recording project takes as a starting point the early methods and concepts of Henry Fox Talbot. The project continues on in the direction that he began, but subsequently abandoned, as he imagined and invented the entity photograpy. In one sense this is a ‘photography about photography’ project, but in another sense this project is a proposal for another photography - one with a vision quite different to the one now generally accepted.
This book is available to order through this website. The first twenty books sold on-line will also include an original photograph from the series. See shop page for preview link and purchase inquiries.
Book of Days
These are photolitic photographs from the Book of Days project.
They were made by exposing conventional B/W paper to the sun and sky for the duration of a day - dark to dark.
The finished project comprised a photograph of every day and all the light for an entire solar year.
