I was drawn to photography as a child when I was given my first automatic camera aged 9 years The art form of photographic expression has assisted my journey of self discovery and aspirations.
My work often involves taking a closer look, viewing the world from a different perspective, up close and personal. Simplifying, highlighting, showcasing and simply conveying the atmosphere in an instant often missed by the naked eye. The outcome is a personal exploration of my subject matter. I am always aiming for the point at which form, function and meaning intersect seamlessly.
Capturing the visual rhythms in natural flow is a way of gaining a glimpse of our environment we barely notice or have words for but connects us all. I feel my strength, as a photographer is not so much in creating something new, but in bringing to the fore how things are.
Colour in Motion explores my favourite subject water; my approach to this subject is varied and often experimental. I have spent many years experimenting and observing closely its many varied forms it adopts in different circumstances. Capturing my findings has allowed me to study and record colour in motion, it’s transforming shapes & colours as it freely takes its own direction and tones. The colours themselves, carrying little or no commitment to the ebb and flow of the water as it takes on the body of life; taking us out of our sphere of influence and bringing others in to it.
