The image here is an outtake from my “Kitchen Mania” series. As an image I quite like it. It has a simplicity and certain compositional elegance that is important to me in the images I make.
It was, in fact, the first image I made of the objects in my kitchen that I encountered everyday but up until then had largely passed unnoticed and visually unloved. The series itself rather moved off in a different direction but, as I said, this one was its precursor. The reason it is an “outtake” is purely because, in the end, I decided it didn’t exactly sit well with the rest of the series as it eventually developed.
Beyond that I have nothing more to say about it…
