I use photography as an escape from reality, I use it to create a world where I can let all the ideas in my mind become something concrete and real, sort of blurring the lines between reality and the imaginary. I very often shoot in the natural landscape, and if I'm in the city I am drawn to parks and areas of green space. Somewhere I can escape from the real world, to feel free and let my imagination take over me for a few moments. I contradict the idea that the camera captures what is in front of it, I photograph the world inside my imagination. A melancholy representation of how we perceive our fantasies, yet we never truly posses them.
