In Optics, illustrations from a variety of early photographic manuals and treaties have been juxtaposed, to present an analysis of the increasingly esoteric language of early photography and the form of “looking” it enabled. Optics is one of a number of books produced using the resources of the London Library.

Blackout features a selection of photographs culled from a newspaper’s electronic archive and represents “standalone” images reproduced between 1965-1985. Until the widespread adoption of digital workflows, archivists would produce microfilm copies of each edition of a particular newspaper. As microfilm has become all but obsolete, scans have been made of the microfilmed newspapers in order to transfer them to digital databases. Blackout represents 9 stages of reproduction and with each stage, the technology that transfers the image leaves its mark on the process.
These stages are:
Negative-> Print-> Half-Tone Separation-> Newspaper Print-> Microfilm-> Scanned File-> PDF-> Tif File-> Print on Demand Publication.

THE ANATOMY OF BUSINESS
The Anatomy of Business aims to present a distorted compendium of the gestures and motifs that make up the visual language of modern business. This is achieved by linking de-contextualised elements from the photographic archive of a 1980’s financial newspaper, to images produced in direct response on, the streets of Melbourne.
