 For nothing can be sole or whole

That has not been rent.
W.B. Yeats, Crazy Jane Talks With the Bishop 

Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.
Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses 

Look out honey, cause I'm using technology!

Ain't got time to make no apology

Solar radiation in the dead of night

Love in the middle of a fire fight

Iggy and the Stooges, Search and Destroy

I am an experimental photographer working with both analogue and digital mediums. Through my work I’m looking to find a balance between chance and control, and between; construction and destruction, signal and noise and ultimately, life and death. I embrace the accidents and errors as they not only remind us how vulnerable and delicate we are, they can often show us something new. It is at the point of breakdown that the medium begins to reveal itself. Through glitches and mistakes we get to see the base elements, the very construction of the material that creates those illusions of reality, the apparatus of photography itself.
