Sky Above, Sea Below

photograph by David Wright

I think that the way you’ve used the clouds functions almost as a means of disclosing and revealing faint traces of land, and that that has the effect of generating a sense of distance. Some of the images are quite bleak because of it, while others are slightly hopeful but seem freighted with some kind of adversity. Do the pictures reflect anything you yourself were feeling or thinking? Are they in any way analogues?

Not necessarily at the specific moments they were made, but yes, they can be reflections of certain past experiences in my life.
