My interest in photography began as a child when the camera and pictures were precious objects within my family home. I’ve used the camera throughout my studies in design as a tool, never losing the fascination, eventually leading to my decision to study it further.
With the absence of any previous formal training in the medium, I began by experimenting with the technical aspects of digital photography in order to increase my confidence, which included exploring the possibilities offered by different lenses. Using a macro lens to study details of ordinary objects within my home, I found that by getting close the camera was unlocking strange and wonderful things previously unperceived by my natural vision.
These images are part of an ongoing work in progress, manipulating lighting and scale to explore the concepts of transformation, perception and the idea of ‘reality’ within the photographic frame.
