Night Walk (a bit pissed)
This series ( again, a work in progress) presents a departure from my recent work in that rather than exploring a familiar, well trodden journey or intimately familiar space, I am exploring an relatively unfamiliar place and through an unfamiliar process.
These images were taken after leaving a party at which upon arrival I discovered I did’t know anyone except the host who had invited me. So, unfamiliarity became the landscape of my experience that evening and so it continued. Leaving the party, walking into the night a few to the good, illuminating the path with the torch from my mobile phone I photographed into the inky darkness.
The world is such an unfamiliar place at night, I couldn’t help but grab at the patterns of visual recognition I could find to bring me comfort and they did. This series has a little further to go before it’s complete but it presents an interesting counter point to my work so far and in that alone it has value.
