The photographs on this page have been taken largely over the past 5 years as my 'creative eye' re-awakened. How many decades have I been sleepwalking? I am frightened to acknowledge the time that's been lost. I always thought of myself as portrait photographer 'way back when'. People were my fascination as an artist and also as a photographer. The 'landscape of the face' was (and is) captivating to me. I worked hard to stretch my creative and technical abilities (a process that evolves to this day). I like to think it's possible to reveal something in the relationship of sitter and photographer, at the moment of execution of the image. Anything further..?? I'm not sure thats possible with photography. The great inspirations (Bill Brandt, William Klein, Penn, Avedon, White and many more) leave an enduring impression every time I attempt to make a portrait. I do look at digital photography as a shortcut to laziness and am thankful, after a difficult transition from film, that I work with 'digital negatives' these days and print in my 'digital darkroom' alongside roll film and a Hasselblad once again!
