I first picked up a camera when I was 15, deliberately decision to hike into Tasmania’s Wineglass Bay to learn how to use an SLR and take my first picture ‘somewhere’. Since that moment, my desire has been to capture places: to capture a sense of it, to capture whatever ineffable thing it is that makes it different to all other places, its colours, textures, light, landscape, architecture, ways of life. I like people to look at them and feel the place.
I am based on Australia’s Mornington Peninsula but have spent several winters in the snow in America, an addiction to the world of snow leading to an addiction to trying to capture that through a lens. When I’m home I cling to the coast trying to capture the atmosphere of surf life and the coastal landscape. I’m recently discovering that the inland world is beautiful too.
I held my first solo exhibition – 8 places – was held at the Brunswick Street Gallery in June 2009.
