A glimpse _ Dark Endeavour_ Dungeness

The Furthest lands | Dungeness

New works emerging from my time and travels on the beach. "The furthest lands" project has continued to evolve over the last year. The work stems from the very act of experiencing something of unspeakable loss. These works employ traditional and experimental photographic techniques with uncertain outcomes. It is not the end result which is so important, but the process of remembering.

Erkembode: Butterfly Vision series

On Discovering a Butterfly
 I found it and I named it, being versed
 in taxonomic Latin; thus became
 godfather to an insect and its first
 describer -- and I want no other fame.

 Wide open on its pin (though fast asleep),
 and safe from creeping relatives and rust,
 in the secluded stronghold where we keep
 type specimens it will transcend its dust.

 Dark pictures, thrones, the stones that pilgrims kiss,
 poems that take a thousand years to die
 but ape the immortality of this
 red label on a little butterfly.
-- Vladimir Nabokov
