In contradiction to my Lucid project, but still with my obsession of movement, the Windswept series evokes a feeling of stillness, even though the motions are quite the opposite… This time I choose to take a very different photographic approach, in place of shooting the movement through long exposures, with this series I was aiming to freeze the motion and create a state of statue. Creating these images could only be done with my subjects letting go of everything, being somewhere else away from the camera and studio. When someone is in this state, they have left behind thoughts … they’re in new state of mind, drifting within the moment.
A selection of these images appeared in my exhibition ‘HUMAN’ which was for the 2014 Shimmer Benial photography festival, sponsored by the Onkaparinga arts centre. My work was on show in the MollyDooker winery in McLaren Vale.
