Mare Anguis | Serpent Sea is from the Mare Undarum series which underpins a large body of work investigating the moon. I am interested in the longstanding impact the moon has had on daily human life whilst modern urban civilisation has become largely oblivious to it.
The work aims to portray the mysterious and transient nature of the moon that often passes us by unnoticed. The capture of the familiar in an unfamiliar form intends to inspire the viewer to reconsider and respect the beauty and fragility of our universe.
I was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2009 with this series of work which received high praise from Wolfgang Tillmans: "It`s a very specific vision - it`s definitely something I have never seen before and it is an achievement."
The series was photographed from my rooftop in Finsbury Park, London.
I shot on 35mm film which I hand-printed in the darkroom onto fibre based silver gelatin paper and then scanned for output as a c-type.
