Such draining, reducing and veiling recurrently features throughout my own previous work, the evident symptom of an incurable discomfort with that very means that is also the medium of choice... Excesses of contrast and exposure, fogs of unfocused uncertainty, mobility blurred into oblivion, all in turn collude in a rebuttal of the aspring transparency of photography.
This ostentsive transparence, curing the uncritical acceptance of photography's "window" into an unmediated reality, is observable as a present convenience within contemporary art, feeding a straight-forward quick-fix documentary need, or satisfying the quest for a "new objecitivity", in amnesiac disregard for the deconstructive attentions of the Seventies. Perhaps in reaction to such re-grouping, and doubtless as confirmation of a personal reluctance to concede an easily secured image, the litany of obstructions continues.
