"Landscape is an anonymous sculptural form always already fashioned by human agency,

        never completed, and always being added to, and the relationship between people and it

        is a constant dialectic and process of structuration: the landscape is both medium for and 

        outcome of action and previous histories of action."

                                                                                              Christopher Tilley (1994, 23.)


To photograph landscape is to give an opinion of it, that says as much about the photographer as it does the land. With this in mind, my work explores identities of place and of self with a view to discovering something about the nature of how the photograph functions within them and about the nature of the 'moment of experience' and the sense of belonging that results.


I am heavily influenced by the work of continental philosophers, Heidegger and Sartre in particular, and endeavour to incorporate their important thinking in my work. This serves to identify and develop my rationale as an artist whilst at the same time situates my practice within a framework that allows me to explore the nature of philosophical ideas in photography.
