As a Jersey photographer, I draw inspiration from our island, whether it be its unique landscape, its traditional and contemporary architecture, or its flora. More often than not, I interpret my subjects in an abstract way, often focusing on details and minutiae which may otherwise pass unnoticed. This causes the photographs to become visual riddles which entice the viewer to try and interpret them, while at the same time maintaining an intrinsic aesthetic quality which can be appreciated in its own right.
I am a member of the Jersey Photographic Club and last year I received my Licentiateship from the Royal Photographic Society, In May, one of my images was chosen from a competition for The Royal Photographic Society's 151st International Print Exhibition, and it will tour the U.K. for a year. The exhibition is currently running at the offices of the international legal practice, Allen & Overy LLP. in the City, London.
