TTV Pete was my first attempt at an “artistic practice”, starting in August 2006 when I came across the technique on Flickr of photographying Through The Viewfinder of another, often vintage, camera. A community emerged around this technique, formalising jargon and encouraging innovation. By the time I abandoned it I had produced over 2,000 images and spent two years selling prints at art markets and in shops.

This period of experimental photography seeded many ideas which influenced my later art practice, specifically the speculative cameras / experimental capture research and work using camera obscuras.
