When you can be happy with a blurry photo......

Greenwich park 2006

sometimes a blurry photo can be more evocative then a crisp cleanly shot image.

sometimes the blurry can make the photo.

sometimes the blur mimics the memory, a rough estimation of what was both on film as well as in mind.

this is Greenwich Park, London, 2006 shot on 120 film with a holga camera

Thank you 4Culture and King County for purchasing Northern State Hospital Farm 2008

Northern State Hospital Farm 2008

I would like to thank 4Culture and King County for purchasing this piece, for their portable works collection. This image is one of thousands of an ongoing Photographic love affair with northern state hospital farm of Sedro Woolley, Wa.

 

This is the image that has stuck in my head through out the years whenever I contemplate this space. The photograph is part of an edition of 20, some of which are still available for purchase.

going through old images...Tottenham Cemetery circa 1999

back in pre 2000 days I was using a camera that had seen better days. it had a light leak one fix did not completely fix. sometimes it created beautiful images sometimes it just fucked things up.

This is one image in which the camera's faults worked for me in my opinion.

This is from the cemetery next to Bruce Castle in Tottenham which I lived near. I visited frequently it was one of the cooler things in Tottenham which at the time was a place where people did not choose to live. We could afford to live there, I have always been next to the place people want to love, the bit to the side that hasn't seen the gleam of modern consumerism and gentrification hit it.
