My intentions were to create a film work made entirely from photographic still images. My subject and starting point for this work was the waterways of east london, specifically the Lea river and the Regents canal. Using these bodies of water as a vechicle to explore the movement and flow of time and the process of photography itself.
I spent 2 months photographing and making prints in the darkroom, the process was integral to the work. The surface of the water became analogous to the surface of the film in the camera. I started to play with this, in-camera and in the darkroom, creating over 200 unique prints. The photographs were then filmed on 16mm film stock and I edited this material to create the video piece ‘Still Rushes’ which is 4.57 mins.
The final work is a poetic journey about vision, light, experience and photography
