About the Work
I’m a fan of black and white photography. Focus on tone and shape to represent and express ideas is quite powerful, even more so with simple structures. George Krause must have been one of the earliest artists to inhabit Whanganui Tylee Cottage. Which I have history with in that, growing up, the Tylee Cottage residents were the closest I had to neighbours and would often visit. These two naked lovers sit intertwined. I couldn’t tell at first that they are separate people, but through the simplicities of light there is a relationship formed and a strong bond.
