I started taking photographs several decades ago when in my early teens and it still seems magical to this day.

My hope has always been to produce photographs that stand as ends in themselves - not statements about issues or enquiries or windows on the world but things to look at rather than through.

A person's prior experiences inevitably affect how he or she feels about a work of art. This includes knowledge he or she might have about how the work was created. My pictures are made with a film camera and darkroom. What you see are the products of straightforward and well-established techniques for silver-based photography.

Images on a screen are but ghostly intimations. They have a very different presence - much diminished in my opinion - from the materiality of a work mounted on a wall in a particular physical space.

In other words, the print's the thing.
