I am driven by an exploration of color and form. My objective is to create multi-layered images that depict the subtleties of the landscape around us.
I am more concerned with portraying an interpretation than a literal representation of what I see before me.
I have found a way of working using multiple exposures and intentional camera movement which helps me simplify the detail in a scene.
It is a way of working which is controllable to a certain degree, but still has a great deal of unpredictability about it and it is this aspect which is both challenging and rewarding.
Fragility can be conveyed in many ways. It can be expressed with light or shape or color or movement and I hope this diversity is represented here.
Paradoxically, fragile elements often appear to embody a tenacity and strength which refers back to the contradictions mentioned above.
It is the embodiment of all these characteristics that I have tried to portray in this book.
