35mm moon study
‘‘One of my most loved subjects to photograph is the moon and I am truly captivated by its being. I have been photographing the moon for over 10 years which has led to an on-going project studying the lunar phase of full moon. This heavenly body is of endless comfort to me.
When photographing the moon I have a simple set up and routine. I shoot a whole roll of 35mm colour film per moon and I am almost always on my own. There is a great sense of time and movement that you notice when shooting as the moon is always escaping out of the frame and I adjust my camera a lot. As the moon takes up lots of the frame, you have to compensate for the moon and earth’s movement.
I am currently in the process of making my first photobook which includes my moon works.’’
