About

I have been interested in photgraphy since 1968 I have not yet defined my area of photography I am just passionate about making images, but I like portraiture,( Social Documentary ) architecture and I am also keen on art, being a huge fan of surrealism/Cubism Abstract Graham Sutherland and Picasso, Pollock, also David Hockney, Salvador Dali being my favourite artist, I also like the work of photographers arnold newman, walker evans, paul strand and Martin Parr .I also am a fan of artists: Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Anthony Gormley,and Brancusi and finally rodin, I find them all inspiring.oh and Jackson Pollock, Fav color red, fav place Venice, Fav food , Italian, Fav music Snow patrol/ 3 doors down, reading, Lateral thinking by Edward debono,Fav flower Wild poppies, fav drinks, merlot/brandy, star sign aries, Fav film, rainman. And on a final note I think of myself as not a pretty portrait photographer but the opposite I like grainy gritty subjects with harsh lighting and dark meaningful tones, and simple portraits (realism) always looking for my image to make a statement, it does'nt always work but we all aim for perfection maybe, one day!
The great advantage of photography is one can capture a moment in time that is real rather than what we can remember..And therefore realism is recorded historically..Its what we see and not what we imagine..
