I have been an art photographer for over 20 years. I have had many exhibitions in England and abroad. My portraits are the result of a collaboration between myself, attempting to lay bare the uniqueness of each subject, and the individual whom I record in a quiet performance, as themselves. My work creates a dialogue between myself and the sitter, a gradual process of assimilation be the artist and of self-discovery by the model, a symbiotic partnership whereby the defining image will be something we work out together and elaborate by mutual agreement. I orchestrate a response to the expressive potential inherent in that actual person, so as to harness each subject's ability for self-expression. The result, more than a likeness or an expression, is an unselfconscious self-portrait of the sitter in complicity with the photographer.
