Moon (Working Title)
In this ongoing project I take portraits of members of my local community in Dolton, Devon, UK, using only moonlight as a light source. The portraits are taken at night, around the time of full moon, either on sitter’s own land or on ground that has significance to them. It requires the use of long exposures, between one and four minutes; the sitter is instructed to stay as still as possible. The camera records their involuntary small movements, and yet also their stillness, against the backdrop of the north Devon countryside and rotating sky.
