I believe in an algebra of life in collision with images that maintain and deconstruct the essential hallucination of truth and honesty that photography presents. This is what I have strived to obtain in my work both in and out of the darkroom. It is about approaching a received wisdom about cultural colonisation and the relationship of perceptions between race, gender and tea production, particularly in Africa. But its also an exploration into dark and light and the texture of sound – a visual heart of darkness.
My work has been published in The New York Times magazine, The LA Times, The Guardian, The new Yorker, The Telegraph magazine, Foto7, Stern, Der Spiegel, Marie-Claire, The Wall, The British Journal of Photography, Vu, Amnesia, Truth and The Adelphi.
My work is in private and public collections all over the World including the Francis Ford Jnr the Third collection at the Rockerfella Institute in New York, The Victoria and Albert museum in London, The Henri Stoppard collection in Paris and the Yukushi Yammomoto gallery in Taungoo.
