As an experienced photographer I use it to express and manifest my artistic vision. Street photography and social documentary is my real passion but I indulge in other genres, land/cityscapes etc. Landscapes are often thought of as traditional scenic images, but I think there are lots of artistic images and often more interesting ones to be had in urban/city settings. I exhibit my work in both solo and collaborative shows. My last exhibition was a collection of my street images 'Street Life' at the Islington Arts Factory, London. It was well received, comments such as "superb"
Apart from specific projects I photograph anything that inspires me at the time, and endeavour to be creative in the process. There is in my opinion an overuse of contextual concern in visual Art, (but I appreciate its often important to the subject) I believe any piece of art should grab the viewers attention on many levels, and should be able to stand alone on its own merits, without having to read endless and often pretentious contextual blurb in order to get it. "Art is not about something, art is something" - Sarah Bernhardt.
I have been inspired by all the greats of photography, such as Henrie C Bresson, I like the surrealism influence in Bressons work, Robert Capa, Eve Arnold, Lewis Hine, Weegee (Arthur Fellig), Ansel Adams, Sebastio Salgado and Don McCullin to name a few.
