Just a little bike ride…

Here are a few snaps from one of the first instalments of my Spring/Summer stint of bike rides. As you can see I have shamelessly boarded the ‘Hipstamatic’ band-wagon – you know, with the stereotypical faux-medium format appearance; the vignetted edges and deeply contrasted monochromatic colour-scheme – which is a tool used to fool anyone into thinking that you are an achingly hip indie photographer. I completed this look not by the conventional iPhone approach, but instead by using my average Nikon D80 (with 50mm fixed lens) – and then editing them to smithereens on iPhoto, of course. I do hope that you are not too appalled by my desperate attempt to look cool…

This series of photographs and accompanying text serve as an overview of my third year studio practice, which was a piece based on the notions of journey and experience. Two different locations were used for each shoot: one being unknown and therefore a new ‘journey and experience’; the other a well-trodden route near to my home, a familiar journey. The result was a combination of images and text collating the familiar with the unfamiliar. Influences include journey-centered artist, Hamish Fulton, whom I was in fact fortunate enough to work with during the final year of my BA.
