Fragments of Abstraction book cover

Fragments of Abstraction | Launched in March 2016.

The photographs in this collection cover five years of urban, street and ocassionally hyperreal photography. They represent a period when I was rediscovering photography, after all but abandoning it for several years.

During this time, film capture, and the analogue process in general, have given way to digital and interactive practices – in design as well as photography. Whilst embracing all things digital, I am happy that there has been a recent resurgence in film photography. In the 21st century, the use of film allows the benefit of being treated as a separate creative tool, as indeed does a hybrid digital/analogue workflow.

Without the superficiality of identifying which is which, there are images in this collection captured by both processes. Covering a five year period, some images can be described as traditional black and white urban, or street, photographs; whilst others are colourful abstract and even hyperreal. All the images align within a theme of making the ordinary and everyday… less ordinary.

The limited edition beautiful coffee-table book consists of 72 pages of content, printed on a high-end Indigo press, decorated with velum inserts and finished with a matt laminate cover.
