I was given a camera as a child and enjoyed taking photographs, but it wasn’t until I took photography for one unit as an undergraduate and came up with some modernist montages in black and white for my assessment that I gleaned its potential as an artistic medium. I developed these in the darkroom myself, but photography soon fell off my radar as I was immersed in painting and publishing books at the time. I needed cameras as a tourist and researcher, but after 2010 took it up again but more seriously. Since then I have traded up from a Panasonic Lumix FZ40 to a second-hand Canon EOS 400D, and then a Canon EOS 1200D that I mostly use for macro photography. I now also use a Canon 7D. The Covid-19 pandemic and lock-down provided an opportunity to reassess and archive for any future exhibition projects or for posterity, as I found age and health concerns catching up with me. This page presents a few samples of my work. I also have two books available on blurb.com – The Path to Salt (2012) and Painting with Light (2020), which can be found on the next level down in the Sub-menu.
