Altered film photographic print. Flip Flop or Aussie” Thong”,at the base of a boat house,Ochre Beach,Dodges Ferry Tasmania. Film lomo colour print 100 ,camera Holga 135 BC ,hand painted with gouache and inscribed with intaglio print making tool.

Altering these “duffers” i.e. prints that were rather dull, has been a lot of fun and is sort of leading to a series.Well received on Red Bubble [Thanks Guys!] and good for the wallet as recycling/ reusing everything is vital to a sustainable arts practice.Knowing that the lomo photography would be a rather hit and miss affair [and that is part of the appeal] hand altering the prints is a nice cross over to painting and scratching the emulsion surface feels pleasantly taboo, like cutting up old books for the first time, or planting a yarn bomb.

yarn bomb “Be Kind”. part of a series of yarn bombs i made and planted around York over the last few years. this one i made for the local school as people had told me there was a problem with bullying and i wanted to “plant” a positive idea.
