about.jpg

 

Being the middle of three generations of film photographers, I always feel extremely proud that photography is firmly embedded in my DNA.  My upbringing of film, piles of negatives, a red box brownie camera and the smell of the darkroom are responsible for my deep, continued interest in shooting film and traditional printing.  Being in the darkroom is hugely important to me.

I am fascinated by the thought of transient beauty, Japanese Aesthetics, symbolism and organisational systems - happy in the knowledge that this concerned Eugène Atget and Karl Blossfeldt. Dare I say that I'm in good company? 

To fuel my vision, academic studies have covered Art, Design and Photography, culminating with an MA in Fine Art Photography and papers written on Colour Psychology - all of which continue to feed in to and directly influence my work.

I collect my #dailyobservationsonfilm here...100 frames of mainly 35mm from my Holga, Leica AF-C1 and Contax Aria - aka project life.
