RED WINE YOU
MAKE ME FEEL
With my photography I enjoy creating abstract images of ‘the everyday’. I seek to capture the ‘special’ in the simple things that surround us on our daily journeys. I want my images to challenge the viewer’s perceptions and expectations of not only the world around them but of photography as an art form.
And this means that I often find myself looking at things differently with my ‘camera eye’, distracted by one aspect or another of subjects. Whether it’s getting lost in detail or exploring aspects of the colour, shape, form and texture before me, I enjoy seeing where digressing from the most obvious path will lead. I like experimenting using unconventional photographic techniques, shooting on film and playing with old school methods.
All my digital images are created ‘in-camera’, with little or no manipulation in Photoshop.
Derived from the Greek words “photos” = “light”, and “graphos” = “writing/drawing”, photography’s literal meaning is to “write with light”. My camera is MY writing tool. My means of visual and artistic expression that’s purpose is not to inform the viewer, but to engage and excite emotionally.
