MECHANICAL LANDSCAPE

- BACK TO PROFILE -

The photographs in this collection reflect a keen interest both in photography and audiences responses to photographic images. Photographs can often appear ‘slick', and ‘easy on the eye'. This ‘slickness' and strong over production values have been used to explore the idea of beauty in ugliness, in the throwaway items of everyday use in particular an exploration of the nature of cars in junk yards.

The images focus on how some of our most prized possessions end their lives. By combining photography and Photoshop, the images produced challenge preconceived ideas of what scrap and junk metal should look like. The lurid intensity of colour summons up a palette unused to imaging cars and engines, the colours and effects used on these crushed cars would be far more at home on the pages of a fashion magazine.

The junk yards have a continually changing, morphing landscape with new junk arriving and being scrapped daily. This continuous ebb and flow of machinery became more and more like a massive mechanical body, each engineered part resembling part of skeletal frame. Each crushed machine became more individual as the project continued, with some bodywork almost in tact and others ripped apart from the very core, disembodied and disowned.

The aim of this project was simply to elevate the ordinariness of scrap to that of material worthy of the gaze of fine art and to nudge the viewer to look at what they throw away in a new light., but what has emerged in these images is that there is something rare and beautiful in what we discard as we are also discarding something of ourselves in the scrap of these yards.
