Precipitation V

We've been in the dark for months, it seemed like the brighter days would never return. I've always been an early riser, up with the sun but these last few weeks, I've struggled to get up in the dark, run in the cold, head off to work in miserable weather. I am raring for life to go, for the year to take off. No matter how many hours of light we have, I always seem to be able to fill them with wonderful things.

Precipitation II

Part of me wants consistency, security, warmth and comfort, but as I look out from the stability that my life currently has, I long for the variety and uncertainty that I see. I feel guilty some times for enjoying that stability, for enjoying the ease that life is offering.

Latest project gradually gathering pace, exploring the ever changing nature of a single consistent place. Despite how we may strive for comfort and safety, the reality is the world is in a constant state of flux, no moment the same as the last, no state constant or reliable, regardless of how hard we try to maintain it. From our single static position we view change as negative, as destructive, yet in those brief moments we have stability, change is what we long for.

What a superb night, last night was for photography. A wonderful, warm autumn evening by the river Wear with only the sounds of rippling water and a breeze in the trees to accompany it. I thought that perhaps this work that continues my work from the last year, might turn out to be just a duplicate of my previous work. Not at all! New equipment, a new frame of mind and enough of a difference in the conditions to take the work into a different direction.

My pursuit to push my work to the boundaries between photography and art, have returned me to a point where nothing is certain: where I don't know before I squeeze the shutter release, exactly what the results will be. Loving every moment of it.

Proud to have work from my year long 'Breathe' project in three exhibitions at the moment; as part of 'Through Soldier's Eyes' at Bishop Auckland Town Hall showing artwork from military veterans, as part of a takeover at the Sunderland Winter Gardens and Museum and as part of the MA Final Show at The University of Sunderland.

Very pleased that my short film 'Bound' is being shown at the 2021 Sunderland Short Film Festival. The film is a short documentary about the positive impact of running on mental health. It was submitted as part of my BA in Photography, Video and Digital Imaging at The University of Sunderland. The festival was postponed from last year, but in that time, I have become a Sunderland resident and so to have this being shown in what is now my home city will be incredibly special.

Breathe - work from my MA Fine Art project. This piece was created at a moment of deep contemplation, midnight at a moment of late night doubt. Life is being truly good to me at the moment, but that doesn't mean there will not be moments of concern, when I start to wonder why is everything going right and when will it end? The time I spent creating, reminded me to enjoy everything, to be grateful for everything I have and have had, to realise that I am incredibly fortunate to have a life filled with doing things I love.
