I was recently interviewed for the upcoming release of Gallipoli and the journalist was interested to know aboutt my End Of Days photographs he found here and here on Hoaxville. Afterwards I thought more about what my photos have been in the past and what I'd like them to be alot more of in the future. The End of Days series was about finding some space at the end of each shooting day. A moment of stillness after the intensity of shooting. A visual excuse to take a deep breath in and out. To reflect on the days events, what worked, what didn't and what needed to be done for the next day.
I think this is what I want more of in the way I approach photography. Not so much trying to 'capture a moment', more the photograph is the moment. A practice of trying to take time to ground myself and be present in that time and place.
