Using the forest landscape as a focus for my photographic installations, sound pieces and projections, it is the making of landscapes that are unreal which motivate my practice. A powerful, yet unspecified narrative is apparent within my work. Photography is the starting point for all my work, so it is important for me to show selected photographs alongside generated projections.
There is a substantial amount of depth that lies within my images. The more literal form of depth that measures the front to the back of the image, the sense of perspective that guides your eyes through the forests exterior of trees into the deeper, darker zones. Suggestion of simple colour applies an implicit depth that is not communicated directly, but remains a focal point. The act of withdrawing people and animals from my images applies a recessional depth that helps to curve a sense of disembodiment.
