Space has always fascinated me.
The beauty of vast solar systems glimpsed through super telescopes and the idea of unchartered planets make for great sources of creative inspiration. So, for me, a photographic project exploring this theme seemed only natural.
Asteroids is the first instalment of a longterm studio project on the Solar System and started with an experimental test shoot bringing together water, ink, ice and coloured gels.
Collision and interaction between liquids is an ongoing theme in my work. I seek to present as permanent what the eye itself can never retain. Whilst unable to control each event in its minutest detail, meticulous planning means that I capture an instant of time never to be repeated; a fraction of a second earlier or later with the shutter and the result would undoubtedly be different.
