“A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera” – Dorothea Lange That is how I feel about my work as a photographer. It is teaching me to see things I never saw before I started photographing them.
For the past few years I have concentrated on macro photography. It gives me great pleasure to find beauty and inspiration in the discards of our society – a derelict car, an abandoned warehouse, a rusted can, a dying tree. These overlooked items take on new life and inspire me to look for beauty where it is least expected. I do enjoy travelling and shooting the locals and their culture also.
