Ever since I first used a camera to capture a scene, I’ve been fascinated by the transfer of the image I see onto photographic film. The process is not static, the subject does not hold still and often what appears on film is not entirely what is expected. There’s no way to know exactly what you have until the film is processed, no second chance to capture a moment in time. This is only one aspect; the film itself adds its own character to creating an image, any flaws in the film can become part of the story. My personal favorite part of the whole process is the darkroom, I love manipulating light to produce the final image. Standing in the red light, rocking a tray of developer and watching the picture appear is still magic to me.
My work generally focuses on turning everyday things into something a little more abstract, where it becomes more about the small details than the entire picture, the individual lines rather than what they come together to form.
