The photographs on this page have been taken largely between 2010 and 2016 as my 'creative eye' re-awakened. after being dormant, or so it felt, for some considerable time. How many decades had I been sleepwalking? I was initially alarmed to acknowledge the time that I thought had 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 between sitter and photographer, at the moment of execution of the image. 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 traditional silver halide roll film and a Hasselblad camera on occasion.
