New Work

A new series ‘Phantom Limb’ is now on my website. Finally the polaroid experimentation turned into something.

It was inspired by spiritualist photography and also the power of objects to transport us to another time. When I was young I kept talismans and keepsakes from my past/my family’s past. Deeply romantic, I imbued them with a special kind of nostalgia. However, I think this compulsion was more acting out of fear and uncertainty and a need to create order in uncertain times.

Places and objects can leave such a profound impact on us. They stay in your mind after you’ve left them, leaving a mark; a kind of haunting.
