The Nature of Things

This book project brings together a series of seemingly unrelated photographs mainly shot alongside more specific projects with precise agendas. It re-visits ten years of my photographic archive to establish new connections between photographs that were not anticipated during the process of shooting to reflect and celebrate the inherent qualities of medium of photography. Photography makes transparent processes of perception opaque. It materialises processes of perception. It does so by applying a system to reality: The system of flattening three-dimensional space, of extracting sound and movement. Paradoxically these reductive processes are also that which constitutes the continuing power of the medium. They represent its limitation as much as its strength.
