Insomnus

Insomnus’ is a photography series that journalises and explores my relationship with my surrounding urban space. Starting as a meditative way to calm my sleepless mind at night, this project developed into a much more introspective observation of my experiences as a night owl, capturing Glasgow’s tranquil and industrial backdrop in a visually dreamlike way with analogue photography. From living in Glasgow since around the time I began photography, I have enjoyed walks around the city at night, watching areas develop, and others wither. Passing other night dwellers often has me wondering why they wander the streets at night like me. With a combination of urban landscape photography and contemporary portraits, I capture this experience while turning the streets into my own studio using existing, un-altered locations, with shopfronts and street lighting to illuminate my images.
