My practice investigates how the creative act reforms relationships with nature during periods of technological dominance. Ongoing interests are the notions of surface distance, from the relationship between humans, the environment and particular boundary points, especially that of water and earth, to the material surface of the photographic image and aesthetic distance. My research methodology originates from a geographical, mythological and historical foundation. The current studio work is an exploration of the landscape genre, focusing on fragmentation and collection. This visual dialogue is about the act of looking at landscape, our sense of place within this frame of seeing and the materiality of the photograph.
