Lunch Time Chat
with Tamsin Green
Saturday 9th June 1:30pm - 2:15pm @Space Studios - FREE entry for the Portfolio Reviews ticket holders only
Tamsin will be talking at Offspring '18 Photo Meet about her creative process for the recent work, Born of the Purest Parents.
Born of the Purest Parents
Salt comes from the sea; dead, vanishing and living ones. As bodies of water appear and disappear they deposit salt. Fundamental to human life, for millennia we have sought out these salt landscapes, the result of both natural processes and human endeavours. Born of the Purest Parents combines field images with photographs of found specimens, google satellite images, text and drawings to create an alternative guide to salt. Elevating an essential mineral that has shaped the history of human civilisation.
Bookmaking is at the heart of Tamsin's creative process. Working with handmade mock-ups, she utilises the physical properties of the book format to develop narratives beyond the photographic images.
Born of the Purest Parents is comprised of 4 interspersed sections, each exploring salt from a particular viewpoint; field studies, scientific studies, tools and objects, language. The book concept was developed with Yumi Goto at Reminders Photography Stronghold, Japan. The handmade book is available as a limited edition of 35.
