“My photographs are taken at the point of stillness between the in-breath and the exhalation. They are of the natural world: intimate portraits of elements of landscape that emerge from prolonged immersion. I seek out places and wait patiently for that state of light, of time suspended, of wholeness in the detail that gift me opportunities to render nature from the inside out. I want to experience and to invite the viewer to feel what the poet Hopkins called the deep down things. Dawn and dusk are favourite times and fog and soft rain are often my chosen conditions, enhancing the sense of ambiguity, of transience, of cusp. These elemental preoccupations are grounded in the materiality of photography and its various processes including post-production and printing using materials such as gold leaf, gouache paint and distinctive Japanese papers using a tradition etching press.”
