All Photographs are memento mori.....*
My photographic practice revolves around themes of memory, time and place. Utilising photography’s innate ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia, my interest lies in exploring the dynamics and tensions between the past and the present. I work with a mixture of analogue and digital processes, incorporating physical objects such as old family photos or vintage postcards to create a composite world, a fusion of now and then. I prefer to work on a small scale, creating images which are both intimate and personal.
Currently I am also experimenting with traditional historical processes such as salt prints, cyanotypes and anthotypes in the fields of portraiture, landscape and botanical studies.
I am a member of London Independent Photography and a contributing editor of their photography magazine fLIP and I now live and photograph in the far west of Cornwall. I am also a member of Newlyn Society of Artists.
