I am a photographer.
I affirm this each morning by pointing my camera at the window and taking a photograph, nothing more than this.
Since February 2015 (ongoing).
Selected windows from over 1,600 (Feb 2015 - Jan 2021)
An edition of 80 windows was exhibited as an analogue carousel slideshow projection at Central Saint Martins, 1 Granary Square, London February 2016
Araki Nobuyoshi, Tokyo Radiation August 6-15th, 2010:
Araki was receiving radiation treatment for cancer and every morning he “looked at the sky from where the bombs came”.
“Other people brush their teeth, I brush my eyes,”
Green, D. and Lowry, J. (2003):
“Photographs… are not just indexical because light happened to be recorded in an instant on a piece of photosensitive film, but because, first and foremost, they were taken.
The very act of photography, as a kind of gesture,
which points to an event in the world, as a form of designation… is thus itself a form of indexicality.”
