The genesis of the City Series came from photographing buildings in a number of cities across the world with surprisingly similar results. Unique architectural identity of each city adds diversity to the contextual themes of the series.
This photographic adventure results in a pausing and reinterpretation of details frequently ignored. The images are often fleeting, creating beauty by capturing a moment of form, light, pattern and colour.
The aim of the series is to articulate the complex nature of contemporary urban landscape photography. The result, based in an environment not usually associated with fine art landscape photography, generates deeply complex imagery that captivates and intrigues.
I was born in London, England, grew up in Malaysia, immigrated to Australia, and have worked in London and Australia. From an early age I have always been fascinated in the visual arts, and a happy accident in art class, in my youth resulted in me spending my time exploring photography and developing my craft in the photographic arts.
Through university and my early career, I left film photography, and became immediately drawn to digital media production. With the development and quality gains of digital photography I renewed my love and passion for this complex art form. I now express my passion for the medium using a combination of techniques learnt from both traditional film and digital platforms. My aim, to create verve in colour and form.
“Verve in Colour and Form”
I like to create surprising, graphically startling images filled with the beauty of colour and diverse forms, yet at times the works deceive even test the eye. This series delivers the essence of my style, startling colour and dynamic forms which intrigue and speak of a distinctive appearance.
