Klea McKenna's work offers clues as to how pushing the limits of our usual creative media makes our creative voice resonate more strongly.
Klea McKenna is not only the photographic half of the duo behind In The Make - a wonderful website documenting the lives of artists through interviews conducted with them in their studios - but also an artist in her own right.
When is a photographer not a photographer?
Although Klea uses photographic media as her starting point, her technique is a long way from point and shoot, using
'...light-sensitive materials and hand-made cameras (among other techniques) to create photographic images. Her process is very hands-on, very unpredictable…[and she] does the bulk of her work outside in the realm of the natural world and then returns to the darkroom to see what she’s recorded.'
How you could push your chosen medium to its limits?
You don't need to answer these questions now. It is enough to let them percolate though your subconscious. Of course, if answers come to you immediately, explore them!
