UNTITLED SERIES

1986 - 1996

 

 

 

The work here was my main photographic focus throughout the 1990s. At this time I was so caught up with photography that I decided to break that fixation and that other than this photographic work at Johanna the remainder of the time the camera stayed in the drawer - balance and perspective have their place beyond the visual arts!

It was refreshing to visit Johanna and impose limited subject matter - hand, a beach, sand, seaweed and the elements. There was always something new. An exhibition at Ertia in 1996 was work from this body of work. Since then I've dropped my hand and the gaze has returned to the beach, waves and elements...
