My goal as a photographic artist is to challenge perception and to inspire a sense of wonder – the ultimate goal of photography and of art itself.
I paint with light.
There are no brush strokes on canvas; only some cold, near colourless inanimate objects, and a camera. This is photography. This is art.
My compositions – rooted in impulse and desire – articulate and reveal altered awareness. Distinct and provocative, they are intended to offer new ways of visual understanding. True to the essence of photography, my work honours the Greek term photos (light) and graphos (drawing). No paint, computer technology or digital manipulation is employed in any part of creating the images.
Using time-honoured photographic techniques in novel ways, and controlled, filtered light, I aim to evoke an emotional response, to provoke thought, cast doubt and stir insight. At its core, my work is a visual language of possibility that compels you, the viewer, to look, to think, to wonder… to look again and, ultimately, to recognize the potential in what is.
Without light, there is no photograph.
I create, illuminate and challenge perception.
