I am drawn to the enigmatic detail of place, the unresolved narrative, the glimpse of uncertain associations, the figure when it can present something more universal than particular. My approach is one of making different series of suggestions, and through whatever formal vocabulary I use, I try always to find a point at which there is a quietening down, a stillness in which the image and the viewer might engage in a sotto voce conversation.

SOTTO VOCE

ISBN: 978-0-9565386-0-4, 80 black and white photographs, 30 x 30 cm hardcover with jacket. SOTTO VOCE is a visual meditation on the age-old questions of how much light is required to dispel darkness and just how is it to be found - this fragment of light - when surrounded by so much darkness? Found in different locations around the world, the images share the same ideas, and part of what they express is a particular reverence for the quiet voice.

BOOK OF HOURS

30 x 30 cm boxed hardcover book of poems and black and white photographs; prototype.
