I always read your blog with pleasure.
I appreciate the tenderness that you write about the making of things and your experience that is transmitted via touch.
Now I bring woodwork to my home by building extensions in timber… whilst making a living as a photographer. The pleasure I get there is similar, it is the exact replication that comes of making a reproduction well, albeit digitally, where I feel one has a degree of control and responsibility that was never with on ones remit using film. I enjoy exploring where digital photography can go where film cannot. below is a link to a little experimental piece that I made for a charity auction, it sold well and is made up 348 separate photographs blended together.
I also draw from time to time, and am secretary of the London Sketch Club, a venerable institution that has been going since 1831…
I follow your mailings, and look forward to your creativity unlocking exercises…..
Thank you so much, there are so many similarities….
Nice to hear from you
all the best
