I have studied in photography and have taken photographs and worked with images for my own expression and pleasure.

I take pictures of what I like to see. My work typically centres around problems of the human condition. I enjoy exploring areas of solitude, foreignness, otherness and defamiliarization.

I use animals in my work to generate humour and a sense of the absurd and to help us engage with their supposed dilemma which in turn enables our own introspection to take place.

I take pleasure in the works of Cartier-Bresson, Edward Hopper, Eadweard Muybridge.

The photographer Louis Faurer’s image the ‘Goggle-Eyed Man,’ 1947 is an image that inspires me as it has found the ‘bizarre and strange’ in the ‘everyday’. The combination of the figure wearing goggles and the momentary catch of light manage to add power and myth to the scene. Anticipating these moments is what I have in mind when I’m out with my camera. In contrast I also enjoy contriving a scene to help communicate a narrative.
