My photographic vision centres on place, memory and irony. There is a significant element of autobiography to my work, because, at a fairly advanced age, I happily find I have reached a pinnacle of self, through the creativity I express through my photography and my small, hand-made photobooks, both of which go hand-in-hand to form a cohesive, holistic and complementary practice. My eye tends to focus on ambiguity, on dereliction or desolation since I find places and things with those qualities to be more interesting than shiny, new equivalents. It is the history and the tales that one can imagine that draw me to them.
