My work is solely analogue and mostly created using lo-fi cameras and film. My images are less about focus and sharpness and more about soft, dreamy visuals which I create using a collection of homemade lenses, medical loupes and vintage magnifying glasses.
After taking darkroom classes in 2000 I spent the next few years experimenting with travel photography and portraiture. My current artistic influences are more abstract and monochrome. More recently my lifelong interests in surrealism, architecture and early photographic processes are coming to the fore and I started experimenting with wet plate collodion under the guidance of John Brewer
. While the photographic world becomes ever more digital and super-pixellated I prefer to slow down and concentrate on capturing simple moments in time.
