These are two works of mine made in the early 80’s when I had been photographing for about 7 years. I have resurrected them because I want to compare them with works that I am making at present. They seem similar.

In the top image I used a piece of trellis, with any protruding bits sawn off and cut to the proportion that I wanted it. Then, on a sunny day, with a helper, made these photographs on a nearby tennis court. They were in the 1982 Sydney Biennale.

The photos of the basket etc, was often sold as a pair. I made some little versions at the time and gave quite a few away.

Here are two recent ones that I am printing up at present. The shell will be released in an edition of six in a few days.
