In a Manner of Speaking

The constant concern of my work has been to investigate the possibilities of creating an artistic language from the context of everyday life. By capturing or investigating the particular silent moments in everyday life, I’m exploring the relationship that exists between absence and existence. I believe in a ‘poetry’ that exists under the skin of everyday objects.

'In a Manner of Speaking' is an on-going project exploring the ambiguous nature of reality and the extraordinary encountered or constructing moments in everyday life. I’m engaged in creating a poetic photographic language to approach something very metaphorical. In addition, this has led to me thinking about how to use the symbolism of connecting subjects to their surroundings. I’m especially interested in the idea of the human trace found in natural environments.
