Statement

I compile photographic image collections that document urban and landscape surfaces.

Compiling images of subjects in the landscape make it possible to reassess, reinterpret and re-relate to landscape. My involvement in the external environment is as a gardener, landscape designer and walker.


Method

Discover images by walking in the landscape, orientate the camera at right-angles to the subject.

Use a Geographical Positioning System device to log the coordinates of each image, select images.

Printing uses the giclee process on a fine art paper.
