I am interested in the human condition and in the interplay between individual and collective experience, looking always for ways of capturing these intersections. My work process is a mix of painstaking set-up and the random, the origin of my images is part imagination, part discovery.
It is one of the paradoxes of photography that inanimate objects remain sharp while the living (and moving) tend to blur and disappear; comparable perhaps to the quantum particles whose location and speed, according to Heisenberg, cannot both be determined at once. My fascination with things elusive is caused by the tickle of simultaneous failure and reassurance, the tension between knowing and not knowing.
I was born in Berlin and studied photography and fine art at the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art in London. I have shown solo and in groups in the UK. I live and work in Devon, UK.
