I describe my photography not by genre or within a technical framework but as a series of spatial experiences that evaluate the physical realities and material constraints of the everyday.
I think of my work more as a form of investigation than documentation. I like to explore the optical and presentational possibilities of the camera and photographic print, often integrating other materials and taking the lens-based medium beyond its two-dimensional conventionality.
The aim is to evoke a sense of “being-in-the-world” through the presence of space while at the same time reflecting my interest in architecture, sculpture and painting.
For me it is a contemplative practice from which emerges a less representational perspective where meaning and perception are playfully subverted. In this respect, I am more interested in how photography can redefine reality and less concerned with the role it plays in revealing the truth.
