My Work

As with many artists my work has evolved through greater understanding technically, and  strong theoretical underpinnings Delighted to shoot all genres of photography, why? because of a  love of making images, of all types, my progression is now to develop as a Socially Engaged Photographer and start to use my practice as an activist, highlighting what is either unseen and not understood, or seen and ignored.

'Photography is obsessive, temperamental, ecstatic and narcissistic in character. It is a solitary activity. The photographic image is discontinuous, selective, unpredictable and irreparable, like the state of things at any given moment. Any touching up, second thoughts or staging assumes an abominably aesthetic character'.Jean Baudrillard: Photographies 1985-1998
