Presents a selection of images made over many years.
The images are all for sale, and only represent a small selection of my work, so do not
hesitate to contact the artist if you are interested in viewing more work from any of the
Digital work vary in size and editions. Whereas images from "much much more" are very limited for vintage prints, with reprints, all archival prints, available at a resonable price.
"What is Photography?"
"Nothing but relations, nothing but affects. Photography and, and, and. Ceasing to suppress the AND, photography works with the infinite responsibility that one is never quits with regard to the other. Whether or not so-called 'appropriated images are used, one is never quits with regard to the other. Digital images; analogue images; straight images; queer images; colour images; black and white images; single images; composite images; framed images; unbound images; one is never quits with regard to relations, to the implication of an other."
Yves Lomax, p18.
City of Churches
Lost amongst the crucifixes of surrounding Stobie poles,
rooted incongruously in its location, the Church of Christ - Croydon 2006
typifies the focus of the series City of Churches.
Recording these symbols of belief, these edifices that inherently lack the grandeur that is typically associated with religious architecture, has bordered on obsession. Flaunting the flaneur's fascination towards a detached but aesthetically attuned observation, this series becomes a typology for the congregations of South Australia.
The image and the series City of Churches revels in the tacit formalism afforded to black and white images; a mode that sets a trigger that embodies an enduring signature of photography

In my most recent work I have been investigating the intersection of realities. Now, in following this project
I will further interrogate the relationships between virtual reality/reality, and what makes compelling viewing
to contemporary audiences.
More specifically this project will pursue previous photographic process as exemplified in, The Re-Photographic Survey, by Mark Klett & Associates in the mid seventies. In that work Klett & his fellow photographers conducted a survey by retracing the steps of 19th Century photographers in America's west and re-photographing sites, thereby giving a new vision of past, present & the intersections that became apparent through time.
In my project I aim to conjoin known "real" landscapes with an archive of known "real" landscapes. This, in line with the thinking of scientist Ed Fredkin, & theorist Mark C Taylor, who postulate that, "To think virtuality is to think reality differently." MARK C TAYLOR, 'Interfacing', HIDING , University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1997, p267. will lead me to provide an accurate simulation of known "reality" with the "reality" of the source images. Thereby, I will open the door to the viewers' understanding of the images that I will construct.
