Artist Message


Distil Ennui is a collection of photographs and films that attempt to present the beguiling beauty of our everyday confinements, re-proposing the forgotten. Images whose essence is derived from the ordinary, displaced and the overlooked.

The work in our personal portfolios is always presented 'as shot' without cropping or post production of any kind. This allows the images to flow and connect to each other with grace and ease. Rather than appearing precious and overly concerned with aesthetics, they more evidently describe a life and eye made behind the camera by way of representation.

It is important to note that every environmental scene entered, spontaneous or intended is always left undisturbed, thus establishing a predominant focal point for the work.
With many of our images, subjects appear floating in a black space that neither interferes nor disrupts the subject matter. In fact the collaboration within this void offers a serene and dreamlike sensation with images broken into positive and negative spaces.

The emphasis is on seeing beyond the limitations of an individual perspective, a way of mapping the extent of the greater forces, invisible from a single human standpoint. Images that do suggest cultural and social issues do so in a way that is not forceful or aggressive, but more open to you, the viewers own interpretation.

Well that's the way we see it, we would love to what you think of our work. so please drop us a line.
