Why do I write or take photographs? For me, it is spontaneous, instinctive even. For many years, in response to some relentless creative impulse that bubbles up from somewhere buried deep, I use my camera or my pen. And this impulse is an exacting, mercurial devil as it propels me in different directions demanding to be satisfied. So, I respond by either producing images or creating blogs or short stories - even books. But still the tension remains.
My artistic outlook is simple. I write about and take photos of buildings, people, cities, events, still life, landscapes – in fact, anything that is within spitting distance as I have an intense curiosity about everything. I just want to record what is around me.
