Photography: Black & White, Photo on Paper.
Inspired by Picasso and Braque who struggled with the two dimensional nature of the canvas and arrived at cubism (whilst watching movies together), my contact sheets allow me to ease aside the key photographic limitations of where to stand and when to press the shutter button; my works are made across hours or days, and from different locations relative to my subjects, allowing my work to subtly transcend time and space, describing urban phenomena in a more complex narrative that mimics how we truly perceive our surroundings, as an amalgam of many different impressions.
Here the urban planning solution of how to get buses onto Manhattan, the Port Authority bus terminus is revealed in all its brutal glory. The left hand side of the work is shot in the morning, the right hand three columns in the afternoon allowing lighting to be right across the entire contact sheet.
I personally print these works on a beautiful titanium luster paper that is perfect for black and white images.
