My long standing practice of symbolist landscape photography has a particular style and composition in that I prefer to capture cooler, grey, washed out, weathered textures and atmospheric linear structures in a particular location. The geographies I photograph, are void of people, allowing the viewer to feel the isolation, calm, loneliness or serenity of that particular place.
I feel that the interpretative language of photography is an important one to harness, especially within todays very visual culture. The photographer can allow factual stories to be told and fictional stories to be created. Playing with photography in this manner, progressed into silk screen prints, and further still into the tactile nature of an artist book, strengthens the value and importance of the visual image as a means of communication; allowing the reader to touch and explore the narratives that are created.
