I find it difficult to articulate the right words to describe my work. Lewis Hine once said ‘if I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera’
What I can say is that photography gives me a unique view of the world. It enables me to capture beauty and abstract moments that can often go unnoticed; it is a means of satisfying my desire for creative expression and experimentation.
‘Deep’ is the result of that desire, it is a project that began with underwater photography allowing me the opportunity to explore an environment that I was unfamiliar with, and then became more of an exploration of those qualities associated with that environment. Movement, a poised weightlessness and a calm sense of space are what ultimately drove the resulting work and which translate so well to the still image.
