House-hill image

with 2 comments

As part of the Wellington hills series I’m working on, I’ve been trying to make an image to express the ever-present house-hills. But feeling the desire and making the work you imagine, often involves quite a leap. However, out of the last expedition, finally something came back.

Back home now and into the routine (one of many) of reviewing photographs from my Wellington series. The weather is definitely ‘back home’ as well – here’s an image for the season.

with 2 comments

Rather to my surprise, a strand of work that’s emerging from my new images is from around my neighborhood. (I’ve always thought of myself as someone who needs to be at least 5 kilometres  away to start seeing things).

Here’s an image that seems to suit the times.
