About I am an Australian photographer and printmaker based in Paris. My point of orientation is total, unplugged, immersion in my surroundings. My creative process is a response to our age of relentless technology, globalisation and mass tourism. Increasingly, people are wired, disconnected from their surroundings, and their experiences are curated by, and filtered through, a plethora of technological devices. Using a technique that I have honed over several years (no shock, no photoshop), I construct contemporary, impressionistic interpretations of the world around me. Wherever the four winds carry me, I walk and I walk, and I look and I look - until the beauty and poetry reveal themselves. I am interested to capture the reality, the presence, and the intimacy of the place, or the encounter, - that which is intrinsically universal and timeless. To paraphrase Jean-Luc Goddard: “…the photograph is not the reflection of reality, but the reality of that reflection.” So far, my portfolio spans the continents of Australia, Europe, Africa and North America. I work digitally, and in film, in colour and black and white, and I also print in platinum/palladium. My mixed media printmaking includes screenprints and collagraphs. Between 2002 and 2005, I studied photography at The National Art School and Point Light Studio, Sydney; and at The Centre for Creative Photography in Adelaide. More recently, I have studied History of Photography, the Arts of Islam and Expressionist Printmaking at L’Ecole du Louvre, Paris. My works are in private collections in Australia and Europe.
