My aim as a photographer was and still is to invite the viewer to look and look again. Initially my intent was to discover and relate information about marginalised communities. I wanted photographs to tell their stories.
I am a collaborative photographer who relishes working with people, where relationships are established and maintained. Working amongst the different groups I become involved with the broader issues that surround them. My continued intent is to present information within the frames, but also to instigate questions that arise about their past, their present way of life, and their impact on today's society and their future. Much suspicion continues to surround these communities; what is the reality?
These challenging issues have made an impact on my development as a photographer. I want my photography to continue making a difference.
