I have been obsessed with photography for as long as I can remember. At one point though, I gave up on photography all together. I didn’t think I was good enough, I listened to people I should never have paid any attention to, and quite often, I sold myself short.
It didn't take long though, to discover photography is something that gave me great happiness. It's something I feel inside and is part of my being, not something I can simply throw away. It was 2015, and after a tough year I decided to pick up the camera again, only this time I was shooting for me. There wasn’t any pressure to perform, or anyone to ‘report’ to. I knew when I got home and looked at the photographs I had taken, there wouldn’t be someone there telling me my photographs were rubbish, or that they could do better than me.
At that time, photography was a way to escape. I was transported from my daily struggles and dropped in a parallel world. When shooting these images, I felt as if I was living in a dream like state, completely removed from my daily life, feeling invigorated, whole, happy, purposeful.
My images are an extension of me. They are what I’m feeling, they are my thoughts, they are where I am, or where I want to be. They evoke a sense of calm, they pull the viewer in to an inner landscape, that whisks them away to another world, the same feeling I have when capturing the images.
