As a visual artist I am repeatedly drawn to the medium of photography. Its ability to incite memory, convey a narrative, reveal details which the human eye either over looks or simply does not see, I find exciting, challenging and rewarding.
My work explores the intersection between nature and artifice, metamorphosis and decay, fiction and reality. Through a range of landscape and still-life photographic studies I try to convey a sense of enigma and the unexpected.
I work with a variety of photographic techniques from historic analogue methods such as wet plate collodion, albumen and cyanotype printing to cameraless digital composites. Each process has a unique character and requires a different set of skills and level of interaction. The process and materials are integral to the works expression.
