“Perhaps it’s true that things can change in a day. That a few dozen hours can affect the outcome of whole lifetimes. And that when they do, those few dozen hours, like the salvaged remains of a burned house -the charred clock, the singed photograph, the scorched furniture- must be resurrected from the ruins and examined. Preserved. Accounted for. Little events, ordinary things, smashed and reconstituted. Imbued with new meaning. Suddenly they become the bleached bones of a story.” 

Inspired by this passage in The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, members of London Independent Photography Central Group have cultivated a theme for their 2014 exhibition at Espacio Gallery.

Two further images which I will be showing in The Bleached Bones of a Story are from the series Postcard From Another Place, a project I began as a post-digital travelogue in 2014.

The components of the images, the bleached bones, have been examined, preserved, accounted for. They are no longer anchored to the place where they were found, but instead, are on loan to the narrative that emerged after taking these journeys to other places.

fLIP Spring 2014 – Connections

I am very pleased to have two images included in the latest edition of fLIP, the magazine of London Independent Photography. fLIP is published three times a year. The theme of this edition is Connections which figures frequently in my work.

In my ongoing project For the Moment I have introduced those sorts of Connections which take us out of the moment, away from the physical place we are in, to a virtual space. As our tools evolve we find new ways to index our lives virtually. The digital camera in all its formats is a key tool. In For the Moment, I have aimed to incorporate characteristics that the digital medium affords photography in this super-connected world.

fLIP Connections can be purchased at The Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop, National Portrait Gallery Bookshop, Whitechapel Gallery Bookshop, Serpentine Gallery, The Wapping Project Bankside, Artwords, Photofusion, Third Floor Gallery Cardiff, Eastside Books, Brick Lane, London and directly from London Independent Photography.
