I met Ilias through his excellent “Fortnight” mentoring. I had spent several years experimenting with various alternative photographic processes, but enjoying process above all, hadn’t really stopped to understand what exactly I was exploring, much less formed a narrative with the images.
Ilias and I considered hundreds of photographs, discussing how sequencing, repetition, scale and materiality, among other factors, impact meaning. Having come to photography via printmaking, I printed many of the images in various methods before we landed on the right iteration.
The entire process has been illuminating and will result in a photobook.
“The Lake” contains 150 images and will be released as a limited edition, handmade artist’s book.
