Shadowscape

Photographs by Lauren Healey

For this collaboration with Hole Editions, I was keen to find a way of using the physical properties of light-sensitive lithography to record a space, rather than using the process to re-produce a pre-existing image.

Over a few months, I taped litho plates directly to walls or hung them from curtains to record shadows in a room on bright sunny days. The resulting images are grainy and inexact – the print altering slightly each time the plate is inked up, due to the inaccurate way of producing the image. The horizontal arrangement of prints, whilst drawn from reality, have been combined to create a semi-imaginary landscape of shadows.
