Drifting West

Using a petrol lamp as a navigation aid, scrambling over rockforms, the sound of the ocean as a constant, senses are heightend but vision is limited. Exploring an otherwise familar landscape, by night, the darkness brings detail and new experiences hidden by day. The objects most obvious and familiar to the eye are those which are furthest away, stars and the distant lights of a nearby town. A hand held flash light reveals more information than is seen at the time spent making images, low coloration or none at all exaggerates the sense of otherness. in a sense its a document of the unseen but here the familiar is reversed almost a negative and lunar in its obvious visual reference.
