Until recently, I’ve been reluctant to add moving images to my repertoire as a photographer. I’ve seen a lot of very good moving image work within the Architecture community, but most of it feels a lot like TV to me; fast moving, dramatic sweeping pans or tilts.
My attempt as a photographer is to create pictures and picture stories that in some way convey to the viewer what it feels like to be there, at the house, by the fire, on the land. I want my moving images to reflect this intention as well. That the still images can sit along side and compliment the moving images, creating a dialogue between the two.
This is my first attempt (its not perfect) at a moving image narrative. Its about a house that Architect Pete Bossley made 13 years ago deep in the Marlborough Sounds (NZ) for cinematographer Michael Seresin.
