My process is concerned with making the familiar strange - a common enough approach to making art. Melissa Fleming and Joachim Schmid engage with familiar materials in very different ways. There is a very physical aspect to the way in which both approach their work.

I like the work of Melissa Fleming as she exposes photographic paper to sea and sand to make beautiful prints.

Joachim Schmid is obesessed with photographs to the point that he collects photographic garbage to restore and reassembles the detritus.

These references come from an online magasine Lensculture.
