Drifting wood

Drifting wood was photographed on a small stretch of beach named Covehithe, located on the Suffolk coast. With no vehicular access to the beach, combined with coastal erosion and Covehithe’s proximity to a nature reserve, Driftwood and other spoils are washed up onto the beach which then remains unmoved by human hands.

Extract from the shadows museum
The Shadow Museum – April 2012′- is a selection of photographs taken from a much larger series made over a four month period.
“I wanted to find the shadows that an object casts upon its own surface”.
Each photographs is a close up taken with a low tech mobile phone.
In the resulting images, the objects loose their form , the still life image becomes a dissolving landscape.
