‘Splay of Colour’ was one of the first triptychs I ever created. One of the Camera Clubs I belonged to was having a monthly challenge on ‘Triptychs’ and I thought I’d try out my skills. This proved to be a critical moment in my development as a photographer as my love for creating triptychs blossomed from that point on – I never looked back!
As a result, this piece holds special meaning for me. Exploring something different and learning to look at images in a new way was exhilarating and I felt as if a new chapter in my photography was beckoning. I’d opened the door a crack, and now I was prepared and eager to fling it wind open.
In a sense, ‘Splay of Colour’ is a metaphor for my photographic journey – a colourful expedition – both literally and symbolically.
