About the Book
As my London journeys draw to a close, my dice options are narrowing. On this occasion the chance mechanism hinges on words - by choosing a word from the day's newspaper headline, I am guided to visit tube stations beginning with each letter of the word. As I glanced at my newspaper on the train, one word from the headline stood out - parole, which of course means word in French. What other proof do I need that serendipity is the guiding force of the universe?
Through my camera viewfinder I observe the daily and seasonal nuances which alter our domestic, rural and urban spaces. I usually prefer to take my inspiration from life as it unfolds, seeking to frame the mundane stuff of daily life in unexpected ways and creating fresh perspectives on the everyday. I have a particular interest in photographing the urban landscape, incorporating chance elements and exploring the nature of serendipity, coincidence and connections.The images are then combined into sequences in book form to emphasise the underlying relationships between the apparently random and haphazard, celebrating the accidental and the spontaneous. I am a recent graduate of the MA Photography course, de Montfort University, Leicester.
