For me, photography has become an obsession. For many years, I have documented my everyday experiences in the landscape which have evolved into a visual diary, a journal, which records and reflects my journeys, noting the detail, often over looked, in the hustle of our daily routine. My work focuses on observing and recording the smallest insignificant details that emanate from shadows and refraction of the sunlight. Images of neglected and once abandoned buildings, traces of the layers of history that echo a universal theme of transience, absence and presence. My investigations have led me into a micro world that requires close inspection and a magnification process in order to record the finest minutiae. My work is produced using only natural light and the minimum of editing. I present my images as video, projected still images, prints on metal and varied scale photographic prints on photographic paper. I also paint using mixed media and recently have joined The Forge at Digswell Hertfordshire as a printmaker and fellow of the Digswell Arts at the Forge Digswell. (2014).
