“Hidden Source” is a collection of photos, which have been manipulated and duplicated to create original patterns. To view the pattern individually would give no indication of the original source, and while the patterns are unique, the understanding of where they’ve come from adds a layer that is both surprising and unexpected. Working the image through photo editing software, image by image there are many possible outcomes, depending on the decision to flip, rotate or continue the image. Once the pattern is complete the old image is barely recognisable and a new patterned image takes on a life of its own. Perfect for creating original fabrics.

Going to all lengths to not photograph what everyone else is, this photo came out of one of those moments, where I force myself to see different things to photograph. I love what's happened in this pattern, how the lines in the pavement have created such a dominant feature in the diamond shapes.
