Originally, I trained as a sculptor and visual artist at Edinburgh College of Art. That’s where I first learned the basics of photography, recording my sculpture and making creative work with my Rolleiflex SL35 film camera. Now digital, my photographic practice is varied. Recent work has often been pseudo-scientific in nature. Sometimes taking a chemical reaction as a starting point and observing the unexpected beauty that unfolds, or by looking closely at an object, at a macro level, revealing hitherto unseen qualities and new worlds. The resulting abstract images are open to interpretation. However, whilst making the work I have considered alien landscapes, the mitosis of cells, early cellular life forms, and even time and space. Physics represents our increasing understanding of the world, and there is an inherent beauty in physics.
