Itâ€™s like tight rope walking, when I take photos; if you sway too much to one side you loose your balance and get stuck in a time period.Â I sketch in my mind, in silence, when taking photographs to capture the infinite point of timelessness; neither today, nor the past. Itâ€™s a fine line to realize in oneself; how to use your eyes as your ears.
I personally work with no assistants, and do not photograph any subjects immediately; I visit them and grow as a friend.Â If I miss a great moment, it will come again, I trust the patterns of a person. I approach objects the same way,Â I love the expression or word “still life”; It may be still, but it has life.Â The key in the end is that you have to LOVE people and understand them. My quest is to take the foundation of a person and find their joy.
Lord Snowdon must have been an influential photographer for you to bring forth such a beautiful book of his workâ€¦
I relate to the directness of his work.Â One of the greatest books he did, Private View, captures the British Art scene in the 60â€™sâ€”itâ€™s a mind-blowing, cult masterpiece of a book!! His eye has no boundaries; strong and timeless while remaining raw. Heâ€™s a killer mix– a master photographer with a great sense and passion for craftsmanship.
