About the Book
You move into your home, unpack your belongings, decorate and live in it. You walk around it, eat, sleep, entertain in it.
Sometimes you laugh, at other times you weep. There are times when only the walls hear you.
After a time, and very often, you no longer see it properly.
I walked around and let my camera 'see'.
Born of a Belgian father and an English mother, I spent my early years in Belgium before settling in the UK. In 2002 I felt the need to find expression in a new vocabulary that did not necessarily have recourse to language. Through my photographic work I now endeavour to translate the reality of the captured image into the unreality or ‘surreality’ of the manipulated image. These ‘visual poems’ can stand on their own, or can incorporate or accompany words in English and/or French.
