The giant spider Maman (1999), casts a powerful physical and psychological shadow. Over 30 feet high, the mammoth sculpture is one of the most ambitious undertakings in the long career of Louse Bourgeois (b. Paris, 1911). It is one of the highlights of the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao

I was a scientist for many years, working in the field of medical research, both in academia and in industry. In late 2004, I left science to pursue my creative interests in photography and the visual arts.

I am now a professional photographer living in South East London. You can view my professional photography website at:-
