With my photography I look around me through the eyes of my younger self, with that same sense of wonder and amazement, giving color and a softness to a world which is often tough and black and white.
Family are at the heart of my work. The sense of belonging and trust allow for observation, playfulness and mutual creativity. I show the real world with an unexpected vision. I create rest and a sense of order for myself by focussing on a single detail in the daily chaos of life. My images are both observed and staged, but the observed are so unique that they could be staged and the staged are always inspired by observation.
Having lived in many countries and cultures as a child, I feel I learnt to look and observe others in order to understand my new surroundings. This may be the root of my ability to see things with wonder, as though for the first time.
I am a human nature photographer and have a background as a theatre director.
