Artist's Description

Thor is one image from a series called The Riders that was exhibited at The Centre for Creative Photography in Adelaide (March 2008) and in 2009 at the Epson Gallery at Photographic Wholesalers in Hutt Street (January 2009) and again in March 2009 in Bellingen, NSW as part of the Sibling Rivalry show.

The Riders series was shot at the Tour Down Under in Adelaide, South Australia.

There’s something about the beefy arms, yellow torso and winged helmet of this rider that reminds me of a B-grade Thor animation from my childhood. Actually I’m probably mixing my gods, the winged helmet probably belongs to a different god, but hey, memories are memories and it’s not as though second rate cartoons are documentaries, hey?

The series were shot on Kodak color infrared film. See the full series

The distinctive colours and grain are characteristic of the film. The motion blur was captured in-camera by using camera panning and slow shutter speeds – ranging between 1/15th and 1/2 second. A 28mm wide angle lens further added to the distortion and impression of speed. The camera was a vintage (early ’80s) Pentax K1000. Digital manipulation was limited to minor contrast correction and dust removal post scanning.
