Summary In the attempt to understand how the camera works I built a camera obscura and discovered that photography exists without us. That nature produces pinholes of light that form images came as a revelation. This spawned a new way of exploring the body in motion through photography. Guided by instinctual body memory of light and space I impose rules on how and when I shoot. In this series I ‘performed’ states of motion by combining elements together - a pas de trois of gravity, water and body mass caught in a flash, the action commonly known as ‘bombing’. I continue to ‘choreograph’ the moment in photoshop just like dance notation as if it could be read and repeated.
