Silver Shoreline:

The shoreline has always been a favourite place of mine, childhood visits to the Devon and Cornwall coast, our family holidays to the west coast of Scotland. Indulging with great enjoyment at these past events brought out some of my original 35mm Kodachrome 64 transparencies. Sandwiched between sheets of glass these rich and vibrant beauties gave me inspiration to create a larger version of some of my more recent adventures to Zanzibar and Lake Albert in Uganda.

We treated the aluminium backgrounds with silver to create a granular effect of silver halides. We chose different thicknesses of glass to give a feel of projection and three-dimensionality. The film’s silky black contre-jour feel still subtle with tonality. The colours rich and sumptuous in a way that Africa always offers in abundance.
