They say everyday is a school day….and if that’s the case then May 11th 2017 will be a fantastic one for me….having been approached by Kim Lynch soon to be a graduate photography Student  from Saint Kevin’s College in Crumlin about a collaboration body of work for her graduate show in early 2016.

After much discussion and back and forth we settled on a fantastic idea of project that combined a couple of our passions, the first was Lomography, Lomo or Lofi photography has been something I have been playing around with in the last ten years and have completed a few body of works in the area. The second was travel photography…..and behold a project was born…..
Instead of boring you with long winded artist statements, I’ll give you the stripped down version…

Whats it about:
The work explores the relationship between surrealism and the latent image…….or we could just say it’s about two photographers doing what they do best…MAKING IMAGES!
One shoots a roll of film then they hand it over to the other and the film is reloaded into a camera and shot a second time…the images produced are a double exposure that combine the two distinct images into a single picture, add to that the unpredictable nature of the Lomo cameras with their unique aesthetic, and the images can be fun, abstract, haunting, surreal.
For my part the images have been shot all over the world in places such as Morocco, Italy, Hungary, Slovakia, Iceland to name but a few. For Kim’s part her images are shot closer to home with a few few travel destinations of her own thrown in.
