Cinegraphs

As a child of the 50's a massive influence on me were The Beatles, both through their image and their music. My first record purchase was the single 'She Loves You'. I belonged to the fan club. I saw them perform live and I bought the souvenirs. I smoked my first cigarettes listening to their music.

In the 1980's I came to know photographer Bob Freeman, who was The Beatles photographer for some years and was responsible for the early album covers. I have every album they released, both on Vinyl and on CD. Their music is very much a part of me.

The Beatles mixes original items; the mug, the single, the ashtray - with replica ones; the fan club letter, ticket stubs, cavern membership card. In the image is an album cover, which is part of a re-release set given to me to replace the long worn out original. The image reflected in the coffee is by Bob Freeman.

The Beatles is a recreation of a memory and in creating this I have imposed my narrative on a collection of objects. As a result this cinegraph has become a reality.

In creating moving still life images I am able to convey a dynamic interpretation of my subject, rather than one captured in a frozen moment of time.

Designed to challenge the judgment of the viewer through their deception and to enrich the viewing experience by encouraging a deeper engagement with them, my cinegraphs are intended to trigger a reflective process and prompt recall of past experience for conscious reflection. This empowers the objects to reveal their narrative and project it onto our memory, prompting pleasure through reminiscence in the form of nostalgia.
