The Blur Series is an ode to the collaborative process between a camera and its photographer. A series of dye-sublimation photographic prints on aluminium, the artworks are of photographs taken with a Lubitel 166+ Lomography film camera, which is a 2008 reproduction of the original 1977 Russian design, the Lubitel 166. Each photograph in the series is an abstract visual interpretation of a specific location. Throughout these works, we learn that the camera is equally capable of telling a story on its own, acting as the artist’s partner rather than the artist’s medium.
As the title suggests, this photograph was taken inside of a sinkhole in Oman. This image represents the illusion that the camera has created by fabricating a horizon through a light leakage.
“The interesting dichotomy is that you are in a hole where you can’t see the horizon, but the photo decided that the sunlight is going to come in and blast half the photo, creating a false horizon. Its as if the camera has a sense of humor and its trying to mess with me.”
