Since the beginning of the first lockdown in 2020 I have been indoors watching from the bedroom window.
Day in and day out. Have only ventured out 11 times in over a year so my perspective over this past year has predominantly been from the front bedroom window.
The windows face a crossroads into the town I live in.
At night I would experience disturbing dreams relative to what was observed during the days (and nights) outside my window.
These images form part of a wider narrative mostly catalogued.
The images are more metaphorical and portray my dream visions in a symbolic way.
As such my attitude towards taking shots is more as a stream of unconsciousness drawing from references to these dreams/nightmares.
I use experimental techniques to achieve the results in the images and as such are barely touched in post-processing.
Thank you for gleaning into my world.
