A small 'Summer' selection of Happy Accidents
Summer is Bob Dylan - Salmonella
Music to my ears
Summer is a day spent in bed
Summer is the child in me
The child in me
Eyes that watch me - Where were you last night
I can't resist
In Summer, nothing is what it seems
Nowhere to park
Summer isn't what it used to be
Summer is skin
Room to breath
My family says hello
Happy Accident is an ongoing collection of personal projects celebrating chance in creativity. #1 began with the idea to explore the random marrying of text and image via analogue 35mm photography. With the generous blessing and support of Rafa Montilla - founder of production company Agosto (August) - I began working with my inspired pacharan partner & strategic poet friend Jorge Virgos to pen a myriad "summer" words and phrases in Spanish and English. These texts were pre exposed over a light box on 35mm film, rolled-back, then handed out to friends, family and collaborators who took their summer snaps 'over' the texts. With just these two simple variables of random text and image 1100 pictures were produced. Blown away with combinations that are often magical as they are non-sensical or utterly meaningless, we like to think that art is in the air.
A HUGE thanks to Rafa, 'partner in crime' Jorge, Sergi Roda, the Agosto crew, and all the amazing people who dedicated their time and pictures to the project..Un Saludo.
