Painting, drawing and music performance were my youthful passions. However, these pursuits were largely put aside for a career in engineering.
I have always been drawn to the world of visual communication. As a young engineer I spent many years at the drawing board. Sketching and
drawing the 3D built world is part of my DNA and working as an engineer in a creative architectural and interior design office for 25 years gave
me a love of architectural visual arts.
Having taken photographs for more than 40 years, mainly as records of travel and family, I realised that photography could fill an artistic gap in my
life following my retirement, allowing me to again become involved in visual expression and communication. I am now enthusiastically pursuing
various genres in photography.
The idea of an image offering a visual suggestion, an illusion, rather than the image providing a fully detailed description or story of the particular
subject, is for me, very evocative.
Human creations of all kind, particularly neglected human creations, present me with challenging opportunities for image making. I seek to
encourage a visual curiosity and a contemplation of ordinary and everyday subjects that may normally be completely overlooked.
My images are untitled. Most have been made over the last 5 years.
