About the Book
The 'Push Pull' metaphor has been inspired by concepts of light/dark, ideas about the pushing and pulling of light through the seasons and also through the camera lens.
This collection contains one or more images from various series of work, made during 2004-2008, including 'Mother Hood', 'Be My Puppet', 'Cartes de Visites', 'Hollow Tree House' and the 'Self-Portraits'.
