The following collections are the product of investigation into certain concepts. Often while pursuing these researches I have found the desired goal to shift, sometimes quite drastically. Ultimately, however, the final selection of photographs are intended to work together in evoking one, comprehensive, conceptual idea. Throughout these undertakings I have been particularly fascinated by the way a picture can attract. Its beautiful qualities; such as vibrant colour, rich texture, complementing shades and atmospheric light all engage with the observer. Yet when this is combined with something unusual, unexpected or even unpleasant, it often serves to heighten the impact and further hold one’s attention. Perhaps it issues something of a challenge as to whether the viewer remains as a detached spectator or whether they are drawn into more of an interaction.
