Photography ... For me it is in the details and in the abstraction. The details come from focusing in on what is around us. We tend to speed through the world and not let the details register. Photography allows me to slow down and record a few of those details. It is in the interplay of these details and light that I find the abstractions. That is what I search for - in the light through a leaf, in a pile of broken shale, in ice carvings, in ......... I have a strong affinity for Water and it is something I particularly enjoy photographing. There is something about light reflecting off the surface of water, liquid or frozen that I find especially appealing and it is a constant source of abstract imagery for me. My aim is to combine the details and the abstract and present images that are as much paintings as they are photographs.
