The Blur Series is an ode to the collaborative process between a camera and its photographer. A series of dye-sublimation photographic prints on aluminium, the artworks are of photographs taken with a Lubitel 166+ Lomography film camera, which is a 2008 reproduction of the original 1977 Russian design, the Lubitel 166. Each photograph in the series is an abstract visual interpretation of a specific location. Throughout these works, we learn that the camera is equally capable of telling a story on its own, acting as the artist’s partner rather than the artist’s medium.
Levels was a photograph taken in Oman during a hiking trip. The image represents both the natural levels of the cliffs and boulders as well as the colorful, fabricated levels developed by the camera.
”I took this photo initially because of the subject’s composition, but the unexpected outcome was as if the camera was saying that there’s something more significant here, that this final image and its colors is what hiking in Oman really looks like.”
