About

My practice is predominately camera-less based using analogue and alternative photographic processes.  Taking inspiration from early 20th century photographers, Man Ray and László Moholy-Nagy I have spent over a decade exploring the photogram technique.

My interests lie in the materiality of ‘things’, both, organic and man-made, I’m attracted to the natural structure and form of objects and nature.  Examining the properties of reflection, opacity and transparency in materials I chose photographic processes and methods to highlight the essence and qualities of the subject often revealing new perspectives, prompting the viewer to experience the familiar subject in a very different light. 

A recently completed body of work included the, ‘Driven to Abstraction’ project which explored the notion of the ‘Anthropocene’, utilising the medium of photography in its bare essence; light sensitive paper, light and chemicals. 

Environmental concerns have increasingly become a subject focus and I continue to explore these themes and develop new methodologies to highlight such issues.
