I've been asked to contribute an image to online gallery www.shimmer.ch, the concept is 'the shimmer'. I'm trying to use imagery from my recent work in Berlin - rephotographing one of the pieces with different lighting. I've also tried a couple of pinhole images. I'm really pleased with the way the object/image becomes indistinct.
