Self-portrait, Haefligers Cottage Series #2 Hill End, NSW

Photographer's Name
Peter Solness

This historic cottage is one of the homes available for the Hill End Artist in Residence Program, run through the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery.
I have stayed here over the past three years during different seasons. Wih each visit I'm consumed by the filtering of light through the surrounding foliage that patterns the garden and the interior spaces.
Over a period of time I photographed these patterns then at night, enlarged these photos through a projector. I wanted to heighten the sense of this glorious light that was permeating the windows, doorways, bedroom and other corners within the cottage and in turn, was reaching within the corners of my soul.
