Intro
(...) When I make my work I am often trying to make sense of these visual experiences, to capture some of their qualities, and although my pieces are not illustrative, they are a direct response to the thing I see. (...)

Statement

'Today when I was cycling over the Donnersbergerbrücke a small truck passed me by. The truck was loaded with enormous wooden rolls coiled with coloured electrical wire. At the same time as seeing the miss-proportioned load on the truck, I also saw a life size, anatomically correct, bright yellow plastic elephant on a trailer that was being used to advertise telephones. It was a surreal moment, and when one is not horrified by this industrial baroque, then it is inspiring and to be found around every corner in big city life. I photograph these scenes regularly - these strong images. When I make my work I am often trying to make sense of these visual experiences, to capture some of their qualities, and although my pieces are not illustrative, they are a direct response to the thing I see.'
