My practice is concerned with the relationship between humanity and its surroundings. Whilst encountering obvious physical environments, I also consider the social and cultural parameters which can also influence a persons experience with a place or situation.
Photography gives me a medium to discuss these issues. I intend to create works which are simultaneously aesthetically pleasing and intellectually stimulating.
A lot of my photographic work concerns the human relationship with natural landscapes.
This piece of work reflects the common human experience and memory of a place. Despite attempts by media (drawing, painting, photography) to experience and memory of a place. Despite attempts by media (drawing, painting, photography) to extend this experience nothing can replace that, and my images are representations of the fragments of experience that are extracted from a place.
The interrupted and unusual aesthetic reflects the act of the photographing and also the state of memory of a place, as only certain aspects draw attention and are given significance. The waterfall is the attractions and this what must be photographed, collected and remembered. The space around it it's self seems irrelevant.
It is a piece of work which is relevant to everyone as it discusses the common popular experience.
