“Perceptions of distance, scale and the relationship between objects are the recurring themes and concerns of my work. My imagery may appear to fall into categories traditionally known as still life or landscape, however, these categories fall short of describing the nature of the content of my work.

Often I use a combination of elements – water, sky and landscape, creating ambiguous images from details, reflections and real objects. Manipulating film rather than the image and using simple cameras allow me to be interpretive in the way my images are made.

Often I use a combination of old, primitive, medium format cameras and the latest digital photographic print technology in the image making process. Cameras such as Dianas and Clacks produce none of the instant results or easy accessibility that digital cameras provide. Nonetheless, I am persistently drawn to the creative possibilities of analogue photography and manual cameras.”
