In this series, suburban and domestic locations are depicted at night, exploring the transformation that occurs to suburbia when photographed after dark using the light sources found there. The innocuous sense of familiarity in the suburban becomes less familiar, creating imagery which triggers a sense of the uncanny. The dramatisation of the subject, through the use of artificial lighting, is deliberately harnessed to emphasise the possible relationships between photography and cinema. In particular, this imagery makes reference to the cinematography in the work of film maker David Lynch. Through an exploration of the relationship between the cinematic ‘still’ and narrative, this research investigates the potential for a single image to propose a wealth of narrative possibilities that could exist beyond the image itself in the viewer’s perception. Series of five works, entitled: ‘The Patio’ (2003) 80 cm x 100 cm, ‘Still I & II’ (2006) 80 cm x 100 cm, ‘Tree Enveloped in Mist’ (2006) 122 cm x 152 cm, ‘Nightshade’ (2006) 122 cm x 152 cm, colour lightjet photographic prints, edition of three.
