Light Brushing

 

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 frames from over 1,200 taken over 2015-19

Exhibited as an analogue carousel slide show 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,”

he said.

 

 
 
 

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.”
