Print is not dead...

So in the good ole days I would shoot film and then develop the film, contact sheet and then finally a print would emerge from the chemical waters of discovery...

The joy I would get from physically seeing a print of my creation would light up my eyes with a sense of achievement.

Fast forward to 2020 in the digital world, we are steered towards appreciating photography through swipes on mobile devices or via the mouse click. It's a fast world where I feel the engagement with photographic imagery can be a bit mundane and almost seem like a chore. Come on, let's print out work!!!!

I am a big advocate for printing my work, I believe its the only true way one can truly understand and appreciate a photograph, whether it's in a book or print to size.

I've had my work featured in a few exhibitions over the past few years and one day dream of a one man show. When an image hangs on a wall you really get to appreciate and engage with it unlike the digital sphere, but hey thats just my opinion...

 

Here are some examples of work I have created in print over the past 10 years. I'm a sucker for producing photo books and have plenty in the pipeline. Recently I have produced a number of books including, The Isolated Streets, The Masked Streets and currently working on a photo book of my travels across India. Watch this space...
