The work exhibited in Collection II examines the relationship between a traditional notion of landscape photography and a topographic depiction of the built environment's intrusion upon this landscape. Geometric, man-made elements - electricity pylons, shipping containers, flagpoles - act as graphic structures to counterpoint the aspects of natural landscapes depicted in my images.

Often, the locations I choose for my subjects could be seen as quite sterile; they are certainly devoid of people, my intention being to remove human elements wherever possible. I have always shot on film, and continue to do so in spite of digital photography's advancements in resolution. This is not a stubborn refusal to modernise ; rather, an acknowledgement of film's ability to force the photographer to slow down and consider image capture as a more meditative process.
