Brighton Photo Fringe
Phoenix Gallery
23 Oct – 5 Nov

I have a new piece in a small exhibition at Phoenix Gallery Brighton, part of the Brighton Photo Fringe. The exhibition brings together a snapshot of work in progress by nine of the original members of the Tri-pod Network. Tri-pod is a creative initiative I set up with Miranda Gavin in 2010 to support the development of photographic and lens-based personal projects. www.tri-pod.co.uk

The exhibition has been a good opportunity to experiment with some new ideas and explore moving out of my comfort zone. I had the urge to tear the photographic print in response to the erosion of the cliff edge at Beachy Head. After a lot of experimention I am pleased with the results and plan to continue using the concept of the tear within a developing series. Here is a rough 1 minute video clip, filmed on my iphone creating the tear!
