STATEMENT


Societal concern is at the core of my personal work. I use a variety of photographic styles and approaches to consider the physical impact of dogmatic, political ideology. It’s a fruitful time to critique the powers that be.

Photography is my regular go to for projects but I also use video and alternative processes. The approach is always led by the subject matter. Sometimes serendipity prevails and a chance moment or commission will expand into a new body of work.

The notion that a loss of empathy leads to dangerous actions has fuelled my work for the last ten years. I take solace in the hope that lessons will be learned before history has the time to fully repeat.
