Hi and welcome.
Put simply the majority of my work is street photography. It is the everyday ordinary moment we all experience but do not take the time to fully observe or recognise. I use the camera to document these little moments in time, to register them as actions, to elongate them and give them space to breathe into life.
I have a love for all things Noir and this is something that informs my work greatly. I do this by choosing to focus in on and use big interesting structures, dark shadows, exciting natural light, open and isolating spaces with as few people per image as possible.
Although my work is now much more deliberate, it has been something that has slowly developed over time, with no other reason other than I like to photograph. As I continue to grow as both a person and a photographer so to will the work I make and the message it conveys but that is not the important thing. The important thing is that each viewer finds what they want and/or need in my work – in the story – and leave being able to take that with them. I’m happy with that.
