The first photograph made in a camera was taken by Joseph Nicephore Niepce in France in the 1800’s. Today more pictures were taken in two minutes than were taken throughout the 1800’s. It is estimated that 10% of all photo’s were taken in the last 12 months with approximately 140billion and counting being uploaded to Facebook.
With photography so accessible to everyone these days I have been moving away from everyday images exploring, intentional camera movement (ICM) and multiple exposures. These are more random but every so often a pleasing result emerges. It is experimental but fun.
I have been particularly influenced by Valda Bailey, Doug Chinnery and Chris Friel.
