I recently met the artist Christine Seifert when she came to look at the exhibition. We had a very exciting discussion about the work on show and my approach to photography for it seemed to echo the creative processes she explores in her paintings and clothes designs. She was particularly responsive to the photographs that allowed a strong design element to give them focus and meaning and so we have decided to meet up in Lausanne where she lives in September to develop ways in which her work and mine can work together to produce something fluid and original. I very much enjoy collaborative work, especially when from very early on one intuits a kindred spirit, and Christine's powerful use of colour and willingness to experiment with different styles of painting definitely strikes a chord. I already sense I will be pushed into new areas of expression, whilst I hope to open her eyes to the ever expanding versatility of the modern digital camera.
