I am a passionate and prolific recorder of the world in photographs.
When I take a photograph, I am recording shapes, colours, texture, forms and events.
I am not always making a stand alone work of Art, I am collecting information. This is my sketchbook.
A Little death
I have over 25K digital images in my bank of evidence about the world. These are mainly used as elements in exhibitions and in books. My photographs can be starting points for a whole project and are usually shot in a series.
I originally made analogue photographs on paper and I still have a mobile darkroom for black and white developing and printing. This is the kind of photography I used to teach.
I suspect the attention to light, dark and texture which were important to working in black and white, still influence all the art I make
