The Black and White Collection

The Black and White Collection is a depiction of my relationship with Photography through post-graduate struggle and change. My work, as a pattern, exists within the everyday environment around me. My previous collections, majority of which shot in colour, revolve around location; a way of organising my aesthetic habits and appreciation for the everyday encounter. However, my black and white work lives within the aspects of the everyday that cannot be categorised in this way. Therefore, It is not within the location in the literal sense, but instead my physical existence within the space I work, whether familiar or unfamiliar. My initial attachment to this medium was the process itself, not reliant on the end result; this relationship was first formed through black and white film. By returning focus onto the inauguration of this alliance I am attempting to understand my presence within my own creative space.
