Artist Statement

My work explores the possibilities of alternative photographic practices in tandem with digital media, drawing and painting. As the majority of the population continue to embrace digital photography for its speed, ease of reproducibility and the never-ending need for pixel perfection. A select group of photographers, including myself, continue to investigate the possibilities of analogue methods. These methods are slower and less predictable yet more akin to drawing and painting in their corporeal reality. They are subtle in both colour and tonality and have nuances to their character, which, are always imperfect. Yet it is in their imperfection and the discoveries they reveal, which, holds the key to their beauty and mystery. My current work explores the possibilities of expression and narrative as I repeatedly move through familiar landscapes, exploring mindful presence and serendipitous encounter in the face of the everyday.
