My pictures come from the constant quest of trying to make sense of my surroundings. Our world is intricate and complex, sometimes overwhelmingly so.
As a response to this, I have a primitive desire to try and simplify my environment. I often choose to concentrate my attention on just a single element within a broader scene. I hope to invite the viewer to contemplate what is happening outside the edges of the frame.
I'm always mindful of trying to simplify and not santitize, I want to unmask the imperfections, not cover them over. The stories of greatest interest and most profound beauty are often centered around themes of imperfection.
Most of all, my photographs are visual waypoints on my journey exploring the junctions where we interact and intersect with our immediate environmnet . A journey that is in a constant state of flux.
Far from trying to make a perjorative comment about man and environment, I am simply trying to capture what 'is' and not what 'should be'. An abstract honesty of sorts.
