About me: I have been taking photographs since I received my first pair of spectacles at the age of 8 and suddenly saw things as they were around me. My photographs were first accepted for international exhibition when I was 15 years old. Now, some half century later, I have had the opportunity of looking around me once again in wonder.
About my work: The first thing I noticed when I donned my first pair of glasses was that things are not necessarily as one sees them at first glance. There is always more to them. They can be seen in different ways and from different perspectives. One can always see more if one looks. I have always wanted to work on the edge between reality and imagination. I might have expressed myself better as a painter than a photographer but as a child I was given a brownie box camera and not a box of paints so that just about did it for me.
I look for things rather than at things and hope that my photographs show this. My greatest joy is in hearing someone looking at a picture of something they have seen a hundred times saying "Wow, I hadn't noticed that!"
