For more than 25 years writing words was my main line of business and the image came second, or even third place. A lot has changed in those 25 years – the image has become omnipresent in our lives. Certainly in my life. And as the saying goes ‘A picture is worth more than a thousand words’. Or as Susan Sontag wrote in On Photography ‘Any photograph has multiple meanings; indeed, to see something in the form of a photograph is to encounter a potential object of fascination’.
It’s more than that: it’s recording a moment in life, a one-off that will not repeat itself in the same way or at the same place. It’s my aim to record that moment. Be it in the studio, on location or just passing through.
