Creative Kernow

Jean McPherson

I am drawn towards remote places, rugged coastlines and dramatic scenery and recently relocated from Scotland to Cornwall.

My process starts with exploration. Whether in the natural world or man made, locally or overseas I set out with my camera focusing on the unusual. It could be the way light hits a building or the shape and texture of a cliff, or the rust on an old shipwreck. I feel compelled to photograph images which I find particularly interesting. My goal is not to replicate the images I’ve found so intriguing  but to produce a body of work that captures the essence of that place or time.

Predominantly a painter, I use non-traditional methods and materials. I am fascinated by textures created through layers of decay and destruction whether it’s organic or man made and the way light changes the mood of an image. Also whenever possible, I collect objects found around the site I have photographed and include these 3D objects alongside my 2D work.
