Just been having a bit of a play in my darkroom over the summer with a big stack of optician’s lenses that I picked up at my local scrap store, they mostly came from Specsavers I think. I am particularly interested in them because I have recently realised that I may well need bi-focal glasses and it is those little semi circles of bi-focal glass that have produced the patterns inside the lenses. These images aren’t straight photograms and I have enjoyed the experimental process that created them.

I am also quite interested in the notion of the images being circular which is, relatively, rare in the photographic world, something I always think is quite odd given that the light produced by an aperture would be a circle if it were not cropped by the camera’s square or rectangular format.
