MY HIPSTER COMPLEX RESTRICTS ME TO ONLY SHOOTING 35mm FILM. THERE JUST SOMETHING PURE IN IT'S GRAIN AND RICH IN IT'S LOOK. NATURAL FEELING IN THE IMAGES OF COLOURFUL NATURE AND GRIM DARK OVERTONES IN IT'S BLACK&WHITE SHADOWS.

I LOVE PLAYING WITH 35mm FILM BUT I DOESN'T SEEM TO LOVE ME THE SAME WAY. SOMETIMES MY SHOT LOOK LIKE I'VE FRAMED IT WITH MY FEET AND FOCUSED IT WITH MY TOES (I'M SURE SOME CAN DO THIS, BUT I CAN'T). THAT JUST USER ERROR THOUGH, AND FILM DOESN'T FORGIVE. THAT'S WHY I LOVE IT THOUGH, NOT BECAUSE OF THE BINNED SHOT BUT BECAUSE WHEN YOU GET IT RIGHT, THE FEELING IS INDESCRIBABLE. JOYFUL AND PROUD (I GUESS I JUST DESCRIBED IT)

MY EYE IS DRAWN TO THE CORNER OF IT'S-SELF. I WALK TILL I'M LOST, FIND THE IMAGE, THEN GO BACK. I TRY AND LOOK FOR AND CAPTURE WHAT OTHERS SEEM TO MISS. I THINK ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS DO THIS, BUT MOST ARE LOOKING FOR A WOW FACTOR. I'M SIMPLY LOOKING FOR NICE. SOMETHING CLEAN, BE IN IT'S ANGLE, SHADE, SHAPE, COLOUR OR EVEN OBJECT. ALL I WANNA SEE WHEN I DEVELOP IS SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL IN ITS SIMPLICITY.

I STARTED TAKING PHOTOS IN 2016 IN ENGLAND. I WAS MAINLY DRAW TO THE GRUNGY BACK ALLY B/W SHOTS. MY PHILOSOPHY AT THE TIME SAW HUMANS AS DESTRUCTIVE, I TOOK PHOTOS OF TRASH AND FORGOTTEN PLACES. AS I GREW, I WAS DRAW TO NATURE (NATURALLY AS ANY PHOTOGRAPHER). MY PERSPECTIVE ALTERED AND I WAS SEEING THE BEAUTY IN HUMANS RELATIONSHIP WITH NATURE.

OUR FOOTPRINT ON THIS PLANET.

I WENT TRAVELING IN 2018-19 TO NEPAL, INDIA, AND SOME OF EUROPE. THIS IS WHERE THE BOLK OF MY WORK LIES. THE EXOTIC ENVIRONMENT ROUND ME ALTERED MY PERSPECTIVE AGAIN, HELPING ME SEE MORE JOY IN HUMAN CREATION AND OUR CREATIONS. ALTHOUGH I STILL SAW HOW MUCH DAMAGE WE CREATE; I COULDN'T JUST FIXATE ON THE NEGATIVE, THAT'S WAY TOO DEPRESSING (AND WE ALL HAVE ENOUGH DEPRESSION IN OUR LIVES).

I HOPE OT GROW INSPIRATION OFF HERE (ESPECIALLY DURING NOW). I WISH TO GET OUT AND SEE MORE, CHANGE MORE AND AGAIN TO GET LOST IN THIS LOCKED-DOWN DYSTOPIA
