Being fixated by the art of photography is a journey that I started seven years ago when my wife bought me a camera as a wedding present. During this period I have been highly gratified to see my work published, exhibited and sold locally and internationally. I am a self-taught photographer, also working as a healthcare professional.
I am consistently drawn to re-examine the commonplace; to contemplate and question the monotonous. Each piece aims to celebrate the incongruous marriage of perceived isolation with an overriding sense of wonderment.
I seek to create a tension within each photograph by using meticulous framing and exposure to detach the subject from its surroundings. This lends a subtle disquiet to the underlying themes of beauty, mortality and humour that hallmark my work.
