In unfamiliar surroundings like the countryside, dimly lit objects can appear threatening and eerie to us. Photographed within the grounds of an urban farm ‘Emergence’ deals with the unveiling of objects within the darkness using minimal lighting and long exposure times. Although we see these familiar objects emerging in front of us, it is the dark areas surrounding them that threaten us. These spaces become negative causing fear and anxiety.
A sequence of photographs taken on the streets of Birmingham city. Buildings look very different at night; uncovering a strange and altered world in contrast to the daytime. Public spaces like shopping centres, appartments, office blocks and streets are lit by the ethereal glow of street lighting radiating the ambience of the small hours.
