Going Home

Made using a Box Brownie camera ‘Going Home’ is a set of photographs that convey how my sense of home is about finding tranquility and inspiration through the magical qualities of light.

I chose the Box Brownie as its simplicity of design requires a degree of discipline to use. In complete darkness I needed to take the film off the modern spool and re-wind it onto the old Brownie metal spool before loading it into the camera. I then had eight frames to use, which meant thinking carefully about my choice of subject, quality of light and composition. Once the film was finished I needed to go back into total darkness, take the film off the Brownie spool and roll it back onto the modern spool before having it developed.
