I enjoy imposing constraints upon myself when making images for a project. The images for this one were made at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, England. There are constraints imposed by the park itself; not to include any of the sculpture in a body of work, not even the shadow of one. I identify with this totally I would not like my work included in anyone else’s.

My personal constraints were to find images of entirely different objects, put these together in harmony and bridge the gap between them with my figure. The end result you see here is those images fading into each other in a seamless fashion.
