"The camera is an instrument that teaches people to see without a camera."Dorothea Lange
Between then and now there have been many cameras, many rolls of film and many years in the pursuit of other paths. Finding my way back to the camera as I healed through bereavement has been life-changing. It’s my curiosity about the world, and my understanding of my place in it, that now informs my work.
"Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow."Imogen Cunningham
I’ve never met a beach hut I didn’t want to shoot. I love to explore how the world around us holds memories and familiarity, the everpresent backdrop to our individual stories. I shoot to tell those stories, to record the magic I see around me, often in the most unexpected places. I use the camera on my iPhone like a notebook. Film still thrills me beyond belief.
"The act of making a photograph is less a question of what is being looked at than how."Margaret Atwood
