Still [Flat] Life

C-Type prints, 40cm(w) x 30cm(h), 2004

The images were produced by photographing individual 'still life' objects in the studio, processed as 6 x 4” prints and each object then cut out re-staged propped-up with blu-tack, and re-photographed under flash lighting again.

I developed this process to try to negotiate the physical properties of the photograph; attempting to make the photograph itself rather than its content tangible, trying to expose the edge of the photographs' paper thin surface despite the conflicts of perceived depth.
