These images, created within the more-or-less defined constraints of fashion photography, posses a latent energy which evokes potential, imminence, a sense that something is about to happen. Hope, anticipation, impatience or dread … No human experience contains more kinetic promise than the moment of stillness which preceeds transformation. These instants, and the expressions which accompany them, are more interesting and beautiful to me than any physical attribute could ever aspire to be. Still photography is the perfect medium in which to capture the imminence of change.
