on the periphery of consciousness
at the recent cork photowalk i had the pleasure of meeting rudy of rjphoto.com and we had a fantastic wander round the docks with our cameras (i brought out the holga lens after its wee hibernation and he had a batcamera, a squishy camera, and a holga pinhole), and we had a good long chat about alternative photography and its relation to unreality and dreams, about writing non-pretentious artist statements (do let me know if you ever succeed!) and the implications of shooting for a series, or theme, and about why we share our work and what we want to get out of that. It stirred up a lot of thoughts that had been lying dormant and now i feel like i’m on the edge of moving into a new phase of some sort, regarding my photography. So yeah, that was cool.
