Double Vision (on-going project)
Through the Brownie 127 project devised by Cally Trench, the Double Vision series emerged. The 127 introduced in 1952, provided a perfect opportunity to work with the qualities of the analogue camera and darkroom processes, with a focus on light and dark, positive and negative, doubles and multiplies, while responding to content and composition. Gelatin silver prints (positive and negative); 127 Rera Pan 100 ISO B/W film;24 x 30cm (30 x 40cm with mount);Edition of 10 (each).

For this exhibition Cally Trench and Tineke Bruijnzeels made a drawing every day for a year, accompanied every week by a different guest artist. My seven sequential drawings reflect the shifting landscape observed while travelling between Hong Kong and New Zealand provided a further transition as the week went from 2013 into 2014. Through transitions of time, seasons and hemispheres the constant has been the mountainous terrain where the Hong Kong peaks morphed into the New Zealand Kaimai ranges.
