Photography is, for me, more than my stock-in-trade; it is also a
record, a disclosure, a reflection.
Here you will find traces of a photographic career spanning thirty
years, ranging from fashion and shoe advertising (thanks to Guy
Bourdin), through 'art in the community' and the development
of my interest in the material culture of contemporary legend.
Photography has always been a vehicle for notions of the spirit,
with its innate element of the irrational which entices us to delve
into the unconscious and invisible, as Rolf H. Krauss put it.
This is not always obvious, and is reflected here in some images
more than others, but it still lives in my latest works as ostensive
documents of the performance of legend and conceptual ideas.
I have also made my PhD thesis, Playing Puck (2014), available
to read, with its integral practical element, Fieldnotes, as well as
some of my earlier writings.
