A journey along the former inner German border. On the way I portrayed people and landscapes in search of different definitions of freedomView More
Prompted by the discovery of a 5-pack of unexposed (but out-of-date) 35mm Provia 100F, AOP member, Sean Johnson, decided to contact other AOP members to see if anyone was interested in using the film as part of a collaborative project and as a bit of fun.
'Unseen World' is the result of those photographers' endeavours with their single roll of 35mm film, their imagination and the memory of how to expose and process transparency film. The photographs are about looking sideways, inside, up and out...away from the usual perspective and throwing a little focus on things often missed.View More

A thick haze on a foggy night. It’s like all the lights are fighting it, fighting to get through. But nothing can, no stars or moon in or street lamps out. Tonight the darkness comes alive, it is tangible. And the darkness is not black, not tonight nor has it ever been.View More
