    [pɪˈnʌmbrə]
    [Latin paene, almost + Latin umbra, shadow.]
    1 : A partial shadow, as in an eclipse, between regions of complete shadow and complete illumination.

    3 : something that covers, surrounds, or obscures : shroud 


  • This project, The Theatre of Everyday, involved investigation into concepts of the staged photograph and how they operate to draw on the memories and experiences of the viewer thus allowing the photograph to become a platform for a deeper meaning.
    Formally this involved investigating photographic techniques such as use of shadow, light and colour to influence mood and read of an image. Lighting was used to emphasise the cinematic nature of the photograph while also providing a passage for the viewer; suburbia as a grounds for passages and concealment creating the psychological anticipation that is present in many narrative photographs.
