2013 - 2015

These photograms / organic stains were influenced by the escalating number of homeless people in Brighton. It's hard to engage with an individual if you have nothing to say so I looked at the ground, as many do, and found flowers and fauna penetrating the pavement crust. I found a glimmer of optimism there.

Seemingly a very fragile life can grow and thrive in a hostile environment if given even a tiny amount of sunshine. I made photograms / organic stains using the plants by pressing them into large format film. After a week I’d shine a little blue light onto them before developing and scanning the negative.
