This series is a collection of found situations. I try to approach making photos in the same way I would approach painting or drawing; the only difference is with photography I am using lines and forms I stumble on rather than those I make with intent.
I am interested in the role the subconscious plays in creative contexts. I believe that when taking photos i am not operating on a thinking level, but rather an instinctual one that is somehow directed by a part of me that i don’t know how to consciously access. I find myself drawn to recurring forms and scenes that are reminiscent of themes and ideas that feature in my other work.
Much of the creative urge and act remains mysterious to me and I am not sure I want to unpick it to try to understand it, I often feel like a conduit for an energy that seems to originate somewhere outside of me. As such I feel there is a spiritual component to my work, albeit a subtle and underlying one. Making allows me to access a state of mind and a tranquility that can’t be accessed through other means.
