THE FEAR (2016)

This body of work takes the idealism of peace and happiness, questioning how distant it is from our reality through using traditionalist landscapes shot on infrared and 'near' infrared film, creating images that are slightly uncomfortable, slightly disconcerting and slightly strange.

Happiness is an intangible form, always a step away; we push ourselves forward telling ourselves that one more nine to five will lead to being content. In photography the traditional landscape is always a vision of utopia – the place of absolute content. By adding a new unseen layer through infrared film and allowing light leaks the work allows a third dimension to bleed in – that of discontent within utopia.
