Celia Dymond is a designer who paints and takes photos.
As a sailor and photographer her Holga pinhole camera travels with me everywhere.
The intent was capture the edges of land to water. The feeling of sailing in the ocean. A sense of being out in the open space, and the sensation of being surrouned by water. Using a Holga 120 format, pinhole, Celia has little but her visual intentions of what the image will, or could end up being.
She works with a collection of aged, and heat damaged film stocks. Stored over years, in varying conditions. The process of forced manipuation or forced error is a subject and area that she has been delving into over the past few years.
This drive for forced accidents is in direct conflict to her professional career as a design director where there is an expectation and pursuit of excellence in detail.
