All of the dogs in this series have some sort of relationship with Port Meadow, Oxford. For those of you who don’t know about this area of England, Port Meadow is an ancient area of grazing land, still used for horses and cattle, and has never been cultivated. It is the ‘green lungs’ of the City. Since living in Oxford, I have always walked on Port Meadow, and I quickly formed a very strong bond with it. When my beloved Lurcher, Luca, died in tragic circumstances, I realised that I had few photographs that linked him with the Meadow, where he spent so much time. Compositing images of Luca with landscape images that I have made continuously throughout the seasons was the idea behind this project. With these works I wanted to create some sort of depth. Photographs, especially digitally crafted images, have been described as having ‘a slippery surface,’ which your eye can slide across, and move on. By compositing multiple layers of landscape, my aim was to create something that the viewer could delve into, a palimpsest, pulling back the layers as one might on an archaeological dig, or even uncovering layers as one examined oneself or others. Each image is made up of multiple layers of photographs.
