Something I’ve wanted to do for a while is to get more physical with my work – to get away from digital and to create something with my hands. So as part of my Breaking Pictures series I thought it would be fun to take some actual, real-world photographs and subject them to some physical abuse.
Domestic bleach dropped onto a photograph. There’s something a little disturbing applying bleach to a face -and this was the only portrait I tried this on.
The others I felt were a lot more successful. They are photographs taken on a former weapons testing site that’s now derelict and being reclaimed as a nature reserve. The aggressive act of the bleach fits well with the subject matter and make for a better series of images.
