I am a photographer who works across a range of subjects from landscapes to abstracts. I am inspired by colour, space and stories as much as places or people. So, my images tell the story of a place or an event and capture its essential visual elements and character. I am as inspired by painters (Turner, Rothko or Heron) as by photographers or locations, and seek to distil through palette and texture the essence of a scene.
My work includes landscapes from London to California, India to the Outer Hebrides, wild places in low light, black and white studies and everyday abstract images. I was awarded an ARPS Distinction for a collection of luminous images of London’s South Bank which are on show in this exhibition. Recently I have been exploring more abstract and painterly approaches using intentional camera movement and these works feature in this show. I feel like I have moved through increasingly abstract and dynamic moods as I have responded to recent events.
I use a mirrorless digital camera and my Dad’s old Nikon Film SLR, but also very often my iPhone to capture images as I see them.
