The Orb Project
The majority of what I shoot is heavily centered around the architecture in London, with a strong emphasis on symmetry, perspective and leading lines - I’m fascinated with geometric patterns to the point where I think it could be called an obsession. A lot of my inspiration for image manipulations stem from this, as I strive to recreate my own worlds, spheres and realities directly from the world around me. Over time this has manifested itself into a confined floating world within a manipulated, one point perspective environment. As the idea has evolved, I have started to move on from entirely dismantling my photos and then rendering new images, to shooting specific photos with the intention of more subtle manipulations; namely introducing realistic transparent orbs into confined environments - the ultimate aim being to highlight and merge the delicate line between what is real in our own confined sphere of perception, and what is not.
The project now has it’s own set which can be found here. It’s still very much a work in progress and a bit of a scrapbook of ideas, however, as time goes on hopefully it will start to take on a more cohesive trajectory. Apologies for the long winded post and if you made it this far, thanks for reading :)
