Photography for me has always been a way of understanding the complexity and beauty of the world around me. As a young child I would spend hours with my face pressed up against the glass display cabinets at museums allowing my imagination to run wild, but in the end you would always have to move along for someone else, but this is not the case with a photograph. The true beauty of a photograph is it is timeless there is no limit on how long you can gaze upon it, if it is a photography of an object you can scrutinise and study every inch without it ever moving or if it is a documentary photo you can look the subject in the eye and wonder how they are feeling or how you would act in the same situation. Photography I feel always teaches us something as well as igniting our curiosity and senses.
I am fascinated by human interaction and have a passion for capturing my subjects when they are unaware. In doing so you unlock those small facial expressions that are so quick you may not even notice them. If a subject is aware I am taking the portrait I enjoy clicking the moments in between their thought out poses, a way of trying to capture their thought process as well as the true them. Recently I gave people a rifle to see how they reacted and how recent events may influence their stance.
With still life I take inspiration from the renaissance artists by playing with contrast and lighting to build a almost theatrical image to provoke the imagination.
