Dark Times 2 - Dust to Dust

Dark Times 2. Dust to Dust.

Dark Times 2
Dust to Dust

Much of my work celebrates light, colour and life. ‘Dark Times’ deviates towards the dark, the monochromatic and mortality. The work is being shot during the Covid-19 pandemic here in the UK: The darkest of times. The series includes motifs concerning mortality, religious doctrine, beauty and decay.

No lives are harmed in the making of these images, including my own. Producing the series continues to be a surprisingly therapeutic process.

Pablo Picasso: "And then I understood what painting really meant. It's not an aesthetic process; it's a form of magic that interposes itself between us and the hostile universe, a means of seizing power by imposing a form on our terrors as well as on our desires. The day I understood that, I had found my path"
