I’ve starting printing the exhibition prints for the first showing of Bent at Photospace Gallery in late February 2014. Even though I’ve been working intensively on the images and the shape of the work over the past few months, there’s nothing like the absolute pleasure of seeing a large A2 image emerge from the printer on 308 gsm Hahnemuhle photo rag paper. Below is one of the images from the show which was taken at the Lake Rotorua waterfront. As part of the work I’m trying to name each species of tree – this one I suspect is a Conifer of some sort, but if anyone knows what sort of tree it is, I’d be really pleased to hear from you.
The exhibition at Photospace will be a 20 image extract from the full 69 picture series of Bent. As well as the show, I’m also planning a limited edition book of the full work and will post more information about about this, and other parts of the Bent series, over the coming months.
