At a time when much of the surrounding world is flooded, I am feeling completely drained. I am content, but without impetus. This inertia has led me to take pictures of inert and empty objects. In truth, most of my subject matter is inert. Food tends to be still, unless it is still alive or being thrown. I relish the quality of light in these sunless, grey days.
I have been shooting a series of spoons, following a brief for a possible book cover. The brief demanded an empty spoon on a contrasting surface. The simplicity of the idea appeals to me and has led to my favourite “prop” spoon spending more time than usual out of the cupboard.
