Step this way: Fruitmarket Book Fair VI

This last two months has also led to my processing some of the bird poo pictures that I collected last year, because I see things everywhere and this Pareidolia had become obsessive, I knew I wanted to do something with what I saw. It is an odd hobby that has absolutely inspired and galvanised my creativity.

I have submitted a book to a publisher that I think (hope) will be open to the idea. Some of the images not used in that book I have made into 'Step this way'. One of the things I love about these pictures are the surface textures of roads, pavements and gutters, as in the work of the Boyle family, they suddenly make you aware of what you are standing on and show the beauty of the mundane.
