Inspiration: I believe everyone has a passion, and mine is photography. I've been taking photographs for as long as I can remember, and I have fond memories of being allowed to use my mother's film camera when I was young. I think this early introduction to photography has meant that I often work with analogue photography today, and particularly enjoy the craft and process of developing my own films and creating prints from the negatives in the darkroom. I do however also work in digital too, but I try to limit myself from manipulating my images after I've taken them, as I feel that if a photograph is composed well, it doesn't need to be altered. William Eggleston and Stephen Shore are two photographers whom I love and who have inspired my photography a lot in the past. I have also been exploring the work of photographers who use Twin Lens Reflex cameras such as Diane Arbus, as I love using cameras which may be seen as old fashioned and therefore unusable by a lot of people.
Description: I created this cyanotype using two negatives from a roll of 120 film, which I shot using my old Rolleicord camera. I have always loved the square format of these photographs, particularly as they are not seen as often as conventional rectangular photographs. I explored the process of cyanotypes as I was fascinated by the notion of being able to create an image without using a camera.
