Publication News: European Photography

Two images from my series In A Country Churchyard, featuring the beautiful church of Painswick St Mary’s, Gloucestershire, have been published in the Fall/Winter edition of European Photography: an independent Arts magazine for contemporary and new media, published in Germany.¬† This latest¬† edition (number 94) explores the current trend for Retro-Photography, which editor Andreas Muller-Pohle describes as creative remembering:

The revival of past forms in the light of the present, the re-interpretation of the old – this is what differentiates retro from nostalgia and regression. Retro is thus a form of recycling, as well as a cultural strategy, which, in the context of contemporary waste culture, is indispensible.

iPhone Collage Experiments with glass Negatives

I’m currently working with sets of glass plate negatives. This iPhone collage was created with the Blender app from a glass negative purchased in a Paris brocante. The box is labeled: Plaques du Dr D.V. Monckhoven and probably dates from 1905-1910. I love discovering people and stories hidden away for decades, as the images on the plates emerge from negative to positive.
