You See What I Saw

The concept of seeing and telling inspires me differently and that’s quite evident in these series of photographs.

Uncovering alternate scenes, perceptions and meanings through my fascination with light and my whimsical yet precise process in photo-making.

Exploring light whilst capturing the world’s ordinary people, places and objects in a way that they must not be forgotten is a touchstone that guides me through my photo-making process. It is an encomium to light and shadows, to the ebbs and flows of what light reveals, and what darkness hides.

This series also aims to question our individual tendencies to ignore things we assume are not present.
