My obsession? The blurring between fiction and reality. The simple thrill of finding fantastical possibilities from the most innocuous of places. My camera and I, we’ve existed diversely – commercial, corporate, documentary and advertising. Seriocomic, fantastical, truthful, instructive, anthropological and in between.
