My work explores a personal relationship with the camera and the commonly held belief that photography is about stopping time for us to examine it. I have been testing the limits of notions of the decisive moment using apparatus that stretches exposure in order to draw out meaning and involve process as part of the finished work. This can lead to abstraction and I welcome this.
I am interested in interrogating commonly held notions around photography, especially the idea of some nimble fingered gimlet eyed photographer trapping a pivotal moment. I see this as a distraction because adds weight to an argument about good and bad photography. I reject this not least because of the overwhelming western white and male nature of much of the photographic output I see. There is nothing wrong with the white male view of the world per se, but I see no reason for other voices not to be heard, including my own.
