Photographer #023: Elaine Duigenan

Elaine Duigenan, Great-Britain, 1964, is like many photographers a collector, and where many photographers might take a step back, she takes two steps forward. She closes in on her objects, erasing often any form of context. This is visible in her projects; Nets and Micro Mundi. The last is a series of round photographs of snail trails. "I am continually drawn the to the line, the web and connecting strands – precarious states where there is an implied tension between unity and the propensity to unravel. Beauty, fragility, fear - all present and tangible."

In another project, Elaine photographed plastic bottles discarded on the beach.
