The majority of my photographic series display my interest in the landscape and in nature. I was born and raised in rural Norfolk, England and moved to the United States to Texas in the late 1960s. Much of my early work relates back to the East Anglian landscape of my youth, while my more recent work has dealt with the history of the landscape. These images were taken while working on a project photographing in Spain during the summer of 2013. I became fascinated with how the past informs the present in this ancient country.

Themes that are repeated throughout my work deal with issues of time, history, and memory. I have always been drawn to sites that have an aura of the past. I often juxtapose elements that suggest the symbiotic coexistence of the conscious and the unconscious, permanence and transience. My photographs speak to the duality of human experience by presenting the world as a complex mlange of objects and ideas where unlikely juxtapositions and the past and the present coexist. My work is rooted in and refers to traditional photographic practice, but I use contemporary tools to capture and create the images.
