About

I am a photographer with a monochrome bias living in the North East of Scotland. Increasingly fascinated by minimalism, while the definitions of the genre do vary, my own practice concentrates on three aspects: how small in size or content an image can be and still hold a narrative, how close one can get to the abstract and still recognise the subject and, how we make sense of the abstract. While this site presents series of photographs that I have been working on I am equally drawn to the single image and I am ruminating on how best to present that.
