As a photographer, I hear through my eyes. I am an observer. I listen to my inner response to what I see through my lens.
When I am using my camera – nothing else matters. I am totally immersed in seeing and feeling. I am observing my surroundings and my subject matter; and I am observing my own response to what I see. Using my camera allows me to literally focus on living in any moment.
Photography is an avenue through which I investigate the world. Being a photographer I suppose means that I use photographs in my way of investigating and expressing myself. My exhibitions have provided a portal into not only myself as I develop a body of work; but also to learn about the arts, sciences and ways others perceive the world in which we live.
A Photographer of the ‘Unseen’
The underlying theme in my exhibitions and my photography which I find the most enriching for me – is the “Unseen”. Time. Feelings. The energy of the landscape.
My recent journeys to the Polar regions has revealed a connection with the Shamanic realms which has drawn to the surface the threads of an inner knowing I have had ever since I was a child; and I can express through my gifts as a photographer.
I am excited about exploring this connection with the Shamanic further in upcoming bodies of work; and in the meantime I just thoroughly enjoy taking photographs – whether it is with my iPhone; my underwater Olympus point and shoot; my Canon G16 or my Leica S cameras.
As a teacher I also have the ability to guide others to a different way of seeing the world and themselves within it; and their expression of that. I guide my students into not only being able to ‘Hear with their eyes’, but also express more clearly and effectively their own personal voice as a photographer through their photographs.
