A technique used for painting a subject is to squint – everything is much simpler visually when you do. Shapes melt and edges become loose. Unnecessary details are lost. And most importantly, colours are replaced by tone.
I wanted to capture that same feeling in this photographic series, to retain a certain mood and composition, but without any of the detail. I am continually drawn to the simplification of images, to reduce technical precision and high fidelity in images which I think can be a distraction for image-making.
