As part of his current academic research John is further exploring the boundaries of material process with this emerging body of work.
In the context of digital imagery being impacted by artificial intelligence and augmented reality, the boundaries of the photographic image are being constantly challenged and extended. How does this impact on material photographic processes?
Playing with the material nature of colour photographic papers, John asks the question ‘ when is a photograph no longer a photograph? And if it’s no longer a photograph, what is it?
Referencing the established trope of the landscape in art and revisiting the scientific roots of the birth of photography, John explores this thoughts through playful exploration allowing the materials to dictate the outcome.
