Abstraction is all around us in everyday life.
It does not depict reality but lives within reality co- existing alongside us. In the empty space between objects and movement. In the texture of materials and light. In a movement or action and the echo’s produced. The hidden music in the score that we hear through our eyes.
Creating many images with a textural feel is intentional. We use all our senses in life and we do not experience a flat shiny world. Texture adds depth to a moment in time of image making, adding a dimension of reality to the mind. The abstraction of touch as well a vision. All shots are the source of abstraction in everyday moments with minimal editing. Shot on an iPhone. [Published by Out of the Phone, Paris]
“The more abstract the truth…the more you must allure the senses to it” – Friedrich Nietzsche

“There is a place I go behind a lens where I disappear. I have no real idea of how or what I do, if it feels right, I shoot. There is untold peace & courage in that space, where there is truth in all its forms”.
