All the work I show here are from long-form projects. Some have been going for over thirty years, some started only since January 2020. One theme is common to all: in large part I only record what light, life and love offers up.
Working in partnership, and continual awe, of what the day gives me is the core of the process. It is co-creation, and I am only a co-creator.
All images are available as archival-quality giclée prints, unframed or framed. Please contact me for prices.
The ‘Co-CREATION‘ series started with an exhibition for Panuku Auckland Development on Queens Wharf, Auckland. It has since grown to many pieces of work. All made on a copy stand, allowing petals to lie where they fall, and various debris from the garden, from my hole punch, from ink-spray bottles that work rather messily. The technical quality of the images is very high having been obtained through the extremely sharp Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 and using pixel shift technology. This means images suitable for printing to over 2m wide: they have to be seen in the flesh to be believed!
The ‘Colour of White‘ series started with an accidental over-exposure while on holiday in Greece. In the belief that few things happen for no reason, I looked at the images instead of deleting them. I found that, given subjects with limited dynamic range, very generous exposure turned the image from being about the subject to being a representation of light itself. That was quite a revelation that took several years to illuminate me. More than twenty years later, I’m still at it.
