Asia has held me in a spell for the past twenty years with its diversity, its spirit and its mysticism, and being a passionate photographer I sought a medium that could perhaps unveil the secrets of this great continent.

In 1986 I floated down from 33,000 ft into India, with wide-open senses and a few rolls of infrared b/w film… just to see.
The succession of images that appeared revealed Asia’s hidden beauty… I became captivated, bewitched and was never the same again.

I’m intrigued by the notion of infrared light (which is invisible to the naked eye) manifesting into photographic images. Its enigmatic dreamlike look seems to uncover a hidden realm – a dimension that really does exist beyond the confines of our visual spectrum.

I began to realize the charm and isolation of these mysterious locations and cultures were disappearing rapidly and an urgency took hold of me to photograph them in their natural beauty, before the chance was lost forever.

In June/July 1997, ZOOM international fine art photography magazine published my infrared b/w Asian portfolio. Again in the Sept/Oct and the Nov/Dec 2005 issues, my photographs have been featured.

Working as a free-lance ‘director of photography’ for Discovery Channel Asia, MTV and various documentary programmes funds these Asian portfolios, a personal project now spanning two decades.
