The power of the photograph, the single moment paused in time, inspired me to become an image maker and to use photography as my means of expression. I’ve always been fascinated by the way a photograph provides a window onto our multi-faceted world: it can be both subtle and be obvious, vivid or nuanced, it can be formally simple yet deeply meaningful, but for me it is always compelling.
It is with these personal insights that I have created this body of landscape work. Always mindful of my own personal journey and feeling for place, I hope my work will encourage others to look differently and not feel limited by place and time.
In this book I propose that we are not living in a post-Arcadian age, but that should we allow ourselves, we’ll find that we live in Arcadia here and now. My Arcadia is not a place or a time, but a state of mind and understanding. Those opening the correct door, the right perceptual window, will find a utopian paradise for themselves.
So look through my window, into my Arcadia and when finished open your door and go out there and find your own.
