Artist's Statement:

The world we live in is an amazing place.

Photography is the way I interpret it and express my reaction to it.

My inspiration comes from the unspoilt vast landscapes and wild places of the earth which have been created solely by the forces of nature, from man’s endeavours and the structures he has created in order to survive, from the minutiae of life, the tiny flower centres or the structure of a leaf, from the harmony of colour and shape displayed in nature,and the light that falls between shadows.

I enjoy manipulating and creating images which explore my feelings and reactions to an event or location. I find this to be more intriguing than producing a straight photograph which records an instant in time and over which I have no influence or control.

I am working on improving my use of photography to better express the emotions I feel in a situation, rather than to just record the event.
