My practice is concerned with the attempt to communicate something elusive and unattainable; the unidentifiable something that is forever overlooked; an atmosphere that struggles for verbal articulation. I am interested in documenting this through a desire to suspend the passing of time, particularly in relation to our own mortality: In other words, the space between life and death that might be deemed the ultimate liminal space. Through the medium of both constructed and landscape photography, I have become increasingly focused on trying to locate and suspend that intangible sense of ambiguity. Similar to previous work, these projects - Moratorium and blood and salt - hint at ethical, cultural and political issues, but both are fundamentally concerned with a psychological state of being.
