I first picked up a camera when I was 15. I knew I wanted to learn how to use an SLR, and while on a family holiday in Tasmania I waited until we hiked into Freycinet’s Wineglass Bay to get a lesson on mum’s old Pentax. I wanted to take my first photo ‘somewhere’. So I got a lesson in shutter speeds and F-stops amongst tourists at the lookout over the bay.
Since that moment, my desire has been to capture a place: 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 my photos and feel the place.
I also have a compulsion to show you the world the way I see it. Often it’s far more beautiful than you realise.
My first solo exhibition – 8 places – was held at the Brunswick Street Gallery in Melbourne in June 2009. My second exhibition was at Atelier in Truckee from May to June 2015. From September 2015 my work can be found hanging at Uncorked in Truckee.
