This situational work, created for Scaffold Gallery's A Show About The Show, is а record of the exhibition's opening night from two perspectives. A camera was placed on a tripod, while another was around the artist's neck and recorded his view. The exposures span the duration of the evening's events. After the opening night the images were placed in situ. 2017

In July, August and September 2015, artist Martin Hamblen spent 5 hours Monday - Friday sat on the streets of Manchester, Blackpool and Preston performing the phrase “A penny for your thoughts”.
Each of these images captures the duration of his performance for a single day in every location. The photographs have an exposure of five hours, capturing in this period only the subjects that paused long enough in front of the lens. 2015

Systematic Desensitisation is a technique employed in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to treat a variety of phobias and anxiety disorders. The subject is repeatedly exposed to the same problematic stimuli in order to build up a resistance. I used this method to conquer the fears of leaving my house and interacting with other people.
I set myself the task of facing the anxiety at least once a day for four weeks. Every day before leaving the house I would pose for a self portrait. Each photograph depicts seven days through multiple exposure. Printed on old Bulgarian paper stock, resulting in the degradation of image quality. 2014
