The Dolls Come Alive at Night

The Dolls Come Alive at Night

The Dolls Come Alive at Night.

As a child, i had an overactive imagination and believed that once out of the room objects would come to life. I think many of us do, hence the movie Toy Story was so popular.

I also had some puppets with strange eyes that were always disturbing and felt their eyes followed me around my room. They mostly lived in a draw out of sight. But i was always aware they were there – waiting.

Wishing Tree of Winchelsea

Wishing Tree of Winchelsea

One of the images from the Brightling to Dymchurch series. Winchelsea is one of those beaches not as popular as Camber which has the benefit that there are never too many people on the beach. It is a favourite place of mine, especially at low tide with its  sands and its 6000 year old sunken forest at Pett Level.

Killing Time

Killing Time

Killing time, A Romney Ghost

I found myself standing outside St Mary in the Marsh church on Pickneybush lane in a foggy autumn twilight. In the eerie silence you become aware of sounds that go unnoticed, rustles in the undergrowth, water dripping from the fence, a distant crow, time has stood still. The trees in the graveyard take on different shapes, one is like a giant stone dragon, another has the face of a demon. St Marys is a fortress of a Norman church, built on a site of earlier Pagan and Saxon settlement.

 


Starvecrow Lane

Girl in a red dress, Starvecrow Lane Peasmarsh East Sussex.

I was driving from Brightling down to Rye and took a detour down some country roads and ended up driving down Float Lane loving the name thinking about how boring and unimaginative some road names are and then it got better, Float Lane runs into Dumb Womans Lane. What I like is that this road name has survived. Another road name i like is a few miles away in Peasmarsh, Starvecrow Lane the title of this piece.

Rye Foreign

Rye Foreign

Rye Foreign.

This image is from the series from Brightling the burial place of Mad Jack Fuller to Dymchurch on Romney Marsh the home to the fictional character Dr Syn the Scarecrow. Most of the material with a few exceptions was shot along the route. This picture is one of the exceptions with the background being the ceiling of the Pantheon in Roma, one of my favourite spaces in the world. The original background that was shot in Rye Foreign didn’t work and I was already playing with this background, just added it to see what it looked like and I couldn’t go back, for me it worked.
