Sunshine On Leith

Do You Want The Truth or Something Beautiful?

To my dearest and much-loved followers,

Please allow me to extend to you my sincerest apologies for not uploading any new material in quite a while. I am currently pre-occupied with getting ready to start university in September and spending time with my family and friends in the weeks that remain.

Please, please, please bear with me until Autumn, when I will have an abundance of things to share with you all, I can assure you it will be worth the wait! :D

Yours,

"Cities have become places where we are controlled, by CCTV and other means, in the same way as machines are controlled. My works provide an imaginative space in which this can be challenged. It’s like opening a window in a closed room."
-  Sir Antony Gormley.

“It is a cruel, ironical art, photography. The dragging of captured moments into the future; moments that should have been allowed to be evaporate into the past; should exist only in memories, glimpsed through the fog of events that came after. Photographs force us to see people before their future weighed them down….” 
― Kate Morton, The House At Riverton

Hand-Toned Cyanotype Prints

As displayed above, there are repeats of the same image but with slight tonal variations … this is to show the differing effects that a combination of developing, fixing and toning solutions can have on a standard Black & White print.
