Born in Sydney, Australia, I studied photography and art in London in 2008 after living and working for five years as a freelance photographer in Zurich, Switzerland.
I have worked for numerous clients on a variety of jobs and have had a few exhibitions in Zurich, London and Sydney.
My work up to this point has been preoccupied with exploring how presentingnatural phenomena in an ornamental or abstract way can intensify our experienceof them. In the process, I find myself touching on the impossibility thathumanity can tame nature in any profound or lasting way, and that the framingof an image offers only a momentary glimpse of order, however beautiful it maybe.
I am also concerned with the link between our physical space andsurroundings and its impact on our psychological and emotional identity. Livingaway from Australia for more than a decade has allowed me to approach theAustralian landscape with an eye that embraces the ambiguity, threat,strangeness and spirituality of this country's terrain.
I have a love of film photography that stretches back to my childhood and myfirst dabblings in the art but have come to value and embrace the possibilitiesof the digital sphere whilst still retaining a wonder at the history anddiversity that has defined nature photography over the past century and more.
My initial motivation for expression through photography was a desire toestablish a connection with place, and to explore notions of timelessness andpresence. Through photography, I aim to both forge a connection with communityand express an appreciation of being part of the strange enigma that is life onEarth.
