In the last couple of years, perhaps inspired by the main character of my novel, Not the only sky, I've come to experiment with analog photography, with a particular interest in alternative photographic processes such as hand applied emulsion and pinhole photography. For many years I have kept notebooks full of collages that inspire my writing and visual art. I am fascinated by the way patterns are repeated in nature and urban landscapes (especially east london, where I live and work) and often find inspiration in graffiti, maps, train tracks, aerial photographs, stones, moss, branches, flowers and microscopic organisms. Pasted below, amongst various notebook images and printmaking inks I've mixed over the years, are images from various handmade pinhole cameras that I carry up and down regent's canal as I walk between my home and studio.
