Artist Statement

My photography is about responding to states of presence - linking between inner and outer landscapes.The instant of image-capture is, therefore, reviewed in terms of both a psychological and a spiritual peaks. 

Although, initially, involving a controlled intention - the creative process itself is motivated by reacting at 'the decisive moment ' whilst remaining at a state of observation. At that moment, the camera is no longer separating the world from the photographer. I call this state a decisive observation. 

In contrast to the cathartic experience of image capture, the photo-chemical treatment applied to the film negative, later on, involves very little control. Yet, it produces the appearance of an additional visual surface - as if presenting a physical testimony to the passage of time, and providing an appearance to the unseen. Its physicality is an interruption to the notion of the eternal present-time in photographs (Barth's 'now-then'). 

The surface blemishes and traces appear to be etched into what could be experienced as the topology of one's memory. Their relation to the captured image provides a translucent curtain - a gateway into a different metaphorical dimension, also offering a contemplative look at the rising unconscious.
