exploring figurative underwater works with analogue photography offshore on polaroid film


Figurative works have always been my great nemesis, technically fraught with problems, with hand made silk dresses and large format cameras that are difficult to handle & shoot with.  

underwater figurative artist explore the potential of working offshore in the open ocean
Here a test shot from last night on grainy 5*4" high speed polaroid stock dated 1987, blooms with colour and organic life. I have not shot figurative works since moscow in 2013 which have all been executed in custom tanks, here on the #BaaAtoll
these works are created offshore in the deep waters of the Indian ocean using studio made lighting and a very brave young lady. Experimenting with halo like bubble formations referencing my earlier 2012 work ‘Witness’ from 'A beautiful announcement of death’. No post production. So much more to follow.
