“I loved the title Civil Landscape and was drawn to your images on street demonstrations. There is a real energy to them. I could see you picked moments where people are absorbed in what they are doing and don’t notice you. I have commissioned a project by Dryden Goodwin where he photographed around the streets of Oxford Street in London and had the same experience. He was close to people but not noticed. However the signs people are holding are also interesting here. I will refer you to Simon Roberts project ‘Let this is a sign’ for someone who became interested in rhetoric and signs. It looked like a very snapshot technique here not sure what camera you were using? but that fitted the energy of the work. I was interested in was in black and white – did you consider it in colour also?
We are living in an interesting moment of civil action and of course your title immediately makes me think of images of the civil rights movement – which we are in the midst of again. I would keep out there and taking shots on demos. We now in the UK have a wave of anti corona virus demos – bizarre phenomena – but worth recording? I noted your influences. I too am a big fan of James Turrell.” Lens Culture
