Lives in



My photographic work explores how the topography of the landscape relates to ideas of memory and place. The expectations I have of places are transformed by the reality of visiting them. The camera, as an instrument of perception, tries to capture my impressions, but in doing so produces its own version of experience. In my work I am confronted with the visual traces which the past has left on the topography of places. These are like views of absence. The photograph offers me a wealth of detail in its precise delineation of surface appearances, but in its role of revealing the lived moment, I am always prevented from directly touching the reality of that moment or the past that created it.
