I will focus on recording traces of her local environment, a narrative that embraces urban degeneration. I believe that the prolonged study of what is familiar in the locale enables me to create richly layered images that result in atmosphere over documentary. This abstraction of my view creates an innately satisfying image enabling the observer to perceive order from repetition.
‘Pattern is to photography what rhythm is to music’ (Tedric Garrison)
