Great Expectations

During the last 3 years I’ve spent a lot of time experimenting with different print mediums. One of my favourites is Collograph. I love getting immersed in the process and the tonal images it can produce from cutting a single piece of card. I decided to make a sequence from the first book of Great Expectations. Its a story that has entertained and scared me since a child, and I thought this medium would compliment the atmospheric scenes I’ve kept in my head.
