Monocholia 2014 – present

This project title combines the words monochrome with melancholia. It is a series which explores emotions and the state of mind associated with artistic creativity. The varied images focus on a range of people and places. The darkness in the prints with the elements picked out in white creates an atmosphere of light and shadow which reflects the creative process. The cameras used have varied throughout the project with a spontaneous use of mobile phone; DSLR and analogue cameras. Black and white printing enables more depth of field in the images. The grainy quality of the prints lends a texture to the work and a layering over the surface of the image.
