'Straight Lines', (2016) Artist's statement

I was poised to shoot when the scarce winter sun came through the windows at 26 Caledonian Road. I used small mirrors to redirect its trajectory, the solar constant responded darting across the walls of the domestic space.

 

Printed and manipulated in the darkroom I salute the deli’s past, its pretty packaging and orderly displays. Shot with (and shots of) the same light that shines on all other things.

This site specfic work was made at the temporary 'Geddes Gallery' at 26 Caledonian Road the site of an old disused Italian Delicatessen and flat above the shop. Part of a group exhibition '26 Caledonian Road'.
