a good photograph is one that makes you feel
“I think of my photographs as pages of an unfinished book that is yet to find its title: they appear, stack up, populate my personal space quickly and reveal themselves in dreams. They are like living organisms – they communicate and connect with other photographs and take on their own path. My photographs belong to both abstract inventions of my imagination but are also documentary. They either happen organically or are improvised and used to convey or question our choices, beliefs and convictions through language, knowledge and behaviour. My photographs are both illustrative and symbolic, inviting the viewer to move into a space of discovery. “
