Without light we would not exist. Our world and all forms of life needs light. Most of us also experience our existence and the world around us due to light. Light not only gives us varying levels of intensity but also creates mood and regulates our living pattern. Luckily we are also able to capture or make light and with current technologies in photography the ever increasing methods and forms of light manipulation leaves us dazzled (excuses the pun).
I love the different levels of light, the richness and intensity of colour it shows me. Ever since my first Kodak Instamatic camera I have viewed the world around me with different eyes and hope to be able to do so for many years to come. Especially the new photographic work often done when I am travelling.
I often use the minimalist photographs I make and manipulate them with my laptop or Ipad (or both) until it has become a view of its own telling a different story. This I call drawing with light.

How we view the world and what we do with that information remains a very personal experience (even today when we can get sensory overload). The way I have always looked at my world has been no different except that I probably am more reliant on visual stimuli as a dyslectic person. My view is often very minimalist bordering on the abstract. This album contains some of the pictures I have taken over the past years. These images are mostly shown as originally recorded and have not been manipulated (except for some occasional cropping).
