First Friday Feature / by Nicola Percy

As part of First Friday Santa Cruz 5 artists were commissioned to capture an essence of what is happening in the art scene.  I commissioned a special device to sit on my lens so that I could photograph in circular form - a peephole.  Its a nod to many of the films I studied with Al Reece whilst at Maidstone College of Art in the History of Experimental Cinema.  I was a filmmaker for many moons prior to committing to photography.
