Like Ships In The Night

One thing I’ve not been able to shake since childhood is a sense of wonder at long haul travel. Whether it’s a ship or a plane, I still feel a quiet sense of excitement at the fact that someone is going on an adventure, even if that someone is not me. I wonder about the people on the ship, what their stories are, where they’re going or what they may be delivering.

There’s an old world romance with travel on the seas. It almost doesn’t belong to this modern, electronic era of instant gratification. Instead, there is a commitment to the journey and steady planning – there would surely need to be as it’s not an easy path. The process is so slow. It’s at the mercy of nature. It’s pensive and follows its own rhythm.

Each exposure in this series is named after the ship that it studied on its journey out to sea. Exposures of up to several hours capture the paths of the ship and/or it’s support vessels, it’s lights painting themselves onto film as it meanders in and then out of my life.
