I've wanted for a long time to catalogue and document some of my work and thoughts in a way which was pertinent to the themes that were guiding them. Over the last year, some of my thoughts have really come through in the pieces I make, and the photographs I take, and I really wanted to have them in some sort of portfolio which is tactile.
This book is about details - about those little pieces and parts of a whole which fascinate and resonate and actually make the object:idea:photograph. I set myself little daily tasks of photographing things last year as a way of forcing myself to find beauty in apparently mundane or unlikely sources. I found my walks would become so much more as I looked around, documented it, drawing on that in the things that I make. I wanted to put all those thoughts and ideas into something more structured and conscious. A graphic recollection, simple and stark where the images are allowed to speak with little text - a purely visual catalogue.
This is an expression of details and the processes through which those details evolved over a year.
