Long time no post

It’s been a while since a post of any kind.  Life is busy with teaching photography and that is ticking along nicely.  More of a rythem is needed with my own blogging about my own photographic exploits.

For now here are two star trails from the weekend just gone, enjoy!

Queen Elizabeth Country Park Star Trails

Loving the clear winter sky’s recently! Snapped this beauty at Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Horndean earlier this week.

10 Paignton Avenue

As part of an on going exploration of the relation between Life, Death and Photography, Andrew photographed the partially cleared home of his late grandparents.

The exploration, in this case, sought to document areas that trigger personal memories. From the living room where the whole family would cram in to for Christmas present opening to the chair the cousins would fight over.

Further to these personal memories come elements which all of us can connect with on a level. The difference between a worn carpet compared to where the bed once stood. The decay as part of a house which was a struggle to keep. The garden which was once a center of great pride, sitting unloved and rotting.

Decay

As part of a recent triptych as contribution to a photographic collective called ‘Collective of Two’.  Andrew shot a short series of animal skulls.  The images were shot in a studio environment using focus stacking to create a hyper focal image.
