“At the centre of my creative practice is a HYBRID CAMERA: a digital camera with a Victorian lens, which carries with it a past. Using this hybrid camera my subjects are “consumed”, piece by piece during a period of sometimes up to one hour. This act of photographic consumption can feel awkward and penetrating. Some people have likened the experience to being examined or scanned. But there is a positive side to being taken apart: subjects have the potential to be seen whole again. Therefore the final part of my process is digitally piecing the photographic parts back together, presenting them as a familiar yet unfamiliar whole.” - Gary McLeod (via)
