Breathe. Moments of personal contemplation, captured periods of mediation. The sound of the waves inspiring images that capture time and motion, that are a step removed from the photographic image and into painterly images that can be interpreted differently by an individuals viewpoint, experiences and memories.

I reached a moment of crisis. Photographer? Artist? Neither? Both? This project examines my personal conflict of what defines my practice and the pursuit of creating what I deemed to be unarguably a piece of artwork rather than just a photograph. These images are the culmination of over a year of work striving to create that piece of work. The defining moment in this project was the hanging in the Priestman Building of the University of Sunderland what felt to me my first true piece of artwork.
