My photographic ‘sense’ has been variously described as ‘magical’ or resembling the qualities of Haiku, “visual Haiku” a past commentators simile which I have kept close at hand for many years.
I like the idea(s) or perceptions alluded to by the term ‘magical’ as they quite aptly describe the way I feel about a diverse or sometimes quite beguiling subject matter. It conforms to the concept of transcendent feeling made concrete which is such an important aspect of a certain expressive drive in photography. Fascination, observation and intrigue. My interest in photography spans many years, beginning well before the digital era, but I enjoy (thinking about – if not always acting upon) the new creative challenges presented by the ever growing ‘noise’ of personal image making. I believe that the essence of true stand-out creativity is beginning to shift back to subject matter, narrative, camera craft and (of most interest to me) going that extra mile to capture something unique, but authentic, in the environment. I now feel that my main interest has shifted toward documentary and archival work.
