'I make it Romantic '
Traditional landscape painters from the 19th century have heavily influenced my practice. I have incorporated some of the notions and themes from the Romantic era into my own photographic work and discovered that by choosing to work with traditional analogue cameras, that I myself am able to paint and capture the light. Working with colour negative film means that, rather than attempting to manipulate my surroundings to create an image, I allow the natural changes in light to inform how each piece will look. This is an on going personal collection, exploring the relationships we make with one another throughout life. Whether it is a close friendship or just a brief encounter, that one-day we may not even remember.
