“The Architecture Photography Fund has allowed me to appreciate the process of project development and management within my photography. Over the past year and a half I learnt and exercised skills that have proven to strengthen my image making and consideration.

Overall I am thankful for the opportunity to experiment, test, and challenge myself within my practice, it is not often we get the chance as artist/photographers to practice and experiment without feeling the pressure of wasting resources, or striving for perfection. This project has given me the chance to appreciate a new way of working and understanding photography.” Kes-tchaas Eccleston, 2020 APF awardee
