Rain on Paper

These are photographs taken up against a window facing the sun. The water droplets have reflected onto the paper causing it to look like the liquid was on the paper itself.


The World Through a Puddle

It’s amazing how much we miss on a daily basis because we are so used to our surroundings or think nothing of an object, a building, puddle just because it is perceived as ordinary. Change your perspective on the world and the world will change for you.


The reverse of my cut out images. Removing the main focus of the photographs has a similar effect to hiding everything but. It still makes the viewer more interested in what they are looking at because it is not all there. View Larger

The reverse of my cut out images. Removing the main focus of the photographs has a similar effect to hiding everything but. It still makes the viewer more interested in what they are looking at because it is not all there.


These are a set of experiments which explore the idea that we are more interested and notice more when we lose something or part of what was always there. In these examples, the main focus of the photograph has been folded back on itself so that the surrounding areas are hidden. It also abstracts the image making the viewer more intrigued to know what it is of. These images are all of what reflections you can see within puddles.
