I’m compelled to take photographs, I can’t stop, it’s not a phase I’ve been doing it all my life, well since being 13 or so. I can trace photographers in my family all the way back through the twentieth century so it’s obviously in the blood. It helps me see and understand, it’s all too confusing without that frame around it. I’ve managed to make it my life, I teach photography and I show my work as frequently as I can. If no one looked I’d still do it but I’d prefer to share my photographs, and luckily people seem keen to look.
