My work is less about photography and more about my way of portraying the obvious, the familiar and the mundane. I'm interested in the liminal spaces between familiar states or phases, whether the cusp of summer to autumn, the peak of a flowers appeal to the first sign of ageing, or the state between innocence and provocation. As such, the familiar becomes unfamiliar, in transient states of neither being one thing or another.


My subjects are common everyday objects, places and situations, so ordinaire they have become of little interest to the eye or mind. In all my works and I am seeking integrity in the processes that are employed or deemed required
