This is inspired by a photograph that my Dad took from inside his car which is one of my favourites of his, I wanted to try my own version. On the way back home from a trip to Crail, Fife, I took a quick photo from the backseat.


It was an inspired moment when I used this photograph to layer another and realised how well windows act as a device for other images to seamlessly flow through. The other photograph is of a shop front in Partick and was taken by someone I was close with at the time who was kind enough to let me use it for this project. 


I enjoy the way the curve of the steering wheel interacts with the curve of the driver’s glasses and I think that the framing of the car window gives the sense of a still shot from an old black-and-white film. 


As always, I like to play with contradictions and the title of this piece comes from a pun on the roll of camera film. I think it adds levity to the seriousness of the dreamy monochrome atmosphere.
