For Visual Athletics Club I curated a set of colour images from an archive of my work, developed over the past five years. It takes 'always be looking' as its guiding principle, and comes from a long-term interest in the street, environments and a love of light and space.
·display a different perspective on photographic image making
The work is influenced by photographers such as Nigel Henderson, Helen Levitt, Stephen Shore and Walker Evans and inspired by John Berger/Jean Mohr’s ‘Another Way of Telling’.
In Visual Athletics Club I have applied rigorous selection criteria. Diptychs create third effects and different meanings that deny the original context of the images.
