Centre [ASDA entrance] to Folkestone Museum
When I look through a camera or a screen, I automatically frame what I see... In other words, a camera is boxing my vision and the world I live.
I'm standing inside a camera [obscura] which sides are frosted.
My vision is blurred and my focus on sounds and smells is exponentially incremented.
I photograph in response to ghostly shapes while my breathing and the click of my camera are amplified.
A photographer caged by their own camera is innocuous and more playful.
All photographs taken represent memories of a creature inside an aquarium called photography.
