I‘ve started another series of photographs as well as the Still Life weekly series, I’m calling it Flat Life. These two images will go alongside yesterdays photograph of the radio. I’m not sure yet if this series will work, perhaps a bit too ‘cold’ even for me. The idea is to make compositions from the edges, corners of the everyday.
I got the name from a wonderful book I have called Absurdities by Heath Robinson from the 1920’s, a book I used to look at in bed whenever I was ill when a boy; it features some wonderful inventions to make use of the limited space, like the one below to seat a wedding reception.
