'The central theme of my work is the questioning and exploration of the 'human condition' within photographic portraiture.
Over the last few years, I have directed my attention particularly to photographing women in relation to landscape, nature and time concentrating on transition and aging.
My work explores the subjects of ecology and femininity, transformation and constancy, in order to explore our relationships with the natural world and our own bodies. The cyclical observations of nature alongside the imaging of a human condition is a constant source of fascination to me.
My work has an important ecological message and I have an acute interest in nature. The body within the landscape has a long and interesting tradition and I feel it is very critical and vital at this moment as much of what we understand as Nature (or the natural) is increasingly under threat.
