Double Exposure: New York Street Photography / Unoccupied Spaces

'Double Exposure' consists of two exhibitions in two venues. 

The first, at The Stone Jetty, draws on a selection of street photographs taken in New York in 2015. Here, I focus attention on those who passed by as I walked the streets of the city, hoping to capture something of their individuality within that fleeting millisecond of a shutter release. 

In contrast, Unoccupied Spaces, at More Music Gallery, draws our attention to the various kinds of spaces we all inhabit in our daily lives. By intentionally presenting these images void of any human presence, I hopes to stimulate a deeper consciousness of the space and the way it is defined by our presence/absence.

Composants d'Arles

Composants d'Arles (components of Arles) is a series of photographs taken in the French city of Arles. Located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, Arles is a world heritage site with one of the largest collections of roman architecture outside of Rome - including a magnificent amphitheatre. It also has a history of artistic association: Van Gogh painted here and famously convalesced in the hospital having cut off his ear; and the renowned photography festival - Rencontres de la Photographie - takes place in Arles from July-September every year.

I was fortunate enough to visit during this year's 'Rencotres' (2017) and, as well as taking in as many exhibitions as possible, I took the opportunity to make some photographs of my own. A selection of the results are what you see in this small exhibition.
