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.
São Paolo's Rhythm was a photograph taken under the MASP (Museum of Art Sao Paolo), a building that was also designed by Lina Bo Bardi. Coincidentally, as this was taken at sunset, the camera fabricated an artificial sunset into the photo through a sun-shaped light leak.
“I initially wanted to capture the compressed feeling you get when standing at the bottom of the museum, but the frame didn’t capture the ceiling to show that. Instead, the camera completed the image that I wasn’t able to complete, by ending its film roll and squashing the composition into the top half, complementing the intended purpose of this moment.”
