I found some original photographs, or postcards that could be used as the base for my transformations.
This was such a fruitful experience it shows me just how much things have changed in just my lifetime.
I’ve also been rereading about the methods of Jung and Lowy and it has really re-inspired my work and whilst I think that my imagery may be much darker than their work it is certainly something that I want to try out further.
I had 3 locations in mind when leaving to go and do my second development shoot. I was able to achieve these 3 locations – Initial editing did not quite go to plan but subsequent attempts have been more successful. I have started to wonder whether it is appropriate to bring back the fingerprint.
These are places that all mean something to me and have played a part in the development of my identity. I want to put my stamp on them and the way I find to do this is to wrap the memories in the whorls of my fingerprint entwining the love of my community and embracing it in a single image.
