Of course being a kiwi I would make the annual pilgrimage to the mecca of Swampland to visit my parents just for a week or two every xmas or in late autumn for my birthday. Over the years my love of photography reasserted itself and with it my renewed love of my home country. With nothing to do but go out shooting around the Manawatu in recent years as my mother became increasingly housebound i have developed this time lapse view of New Zealand's slow change over the years. Rural and Urban Desolation of the 80’s and 90s gave way to relative modern prosperity of the noughties. Changing the landscape and the things that fascinate me as a stranger in my own land. Eventually the glamor of London wore thin and for the last few years i have been based out of Bangkok, a handy, warm, friendly place from which to step either to London or Swampland NZ and the relaxed lifestyle has allowed me to spend more time on creative projects. Having forced myself on the Thermostat Gallery (Palmerston North, NZ) people i managed to have a Solo Show of my digital work and be involved in several Group Shows mostly with photographic works. Having thus kindled my artistic connection with Swampland i have been extending my shooting from dwindling desolate landscapes to capturing the last of the small kiwi owner operated shops while pushing my portraiture.
Currently i juggle commercial work in digital moving imagery with Photographic and Experimental Digital Art driven by my own need to express something at an emotional/visceral non-intellectual level.
Since 2015 I have been working with Alternative Historical Photographic Printing processes creating hand made prints of my hybrid digital and photographic art as cyantotype, Platinum-Paladium and other unique alchemical techniques.
The aim being to fuse traditional hand made art print on fine art papers with street photography and digital computer generated imagery.
