I took up photography in Autumn 2007. I am a member of a local photography club, and we visit places of local interest once a fortnight to take photographs. I have been involved in an exhibition with the group, which took place in July 2008. We have a forthcoming exhibition planned for June 2009, in association with the local art gallery and museum, in Cheltenham.
My main areas of interest are natural forms and architecture, which is reflected in the photographs displayed here. I try to ‘see’ an image in a different way, present a fragment of the world from an unfamiliar perspective; to emphasise the uncanny aspects of the everyday. Often this means I reduce the image to its aesthetic abstract qualities.
