I don’t believe any artist should need to justify what they do. Different people have different tastes. One will like a particular image whilst another will not. If I were to be asked why I produce some of the images I come up with, my answer would have to be “because I can”.
To photograph something ordinary and mundane and turn it into something interesting. To provoke curiosity and challenge perception. To create something that is almost believable, but not quite real.
I find living on the Costa del Sol does not offer too many photographic opportunities. There are few rolling landscapes and the weather is pretty constant. I'm a rebel who likes to think he’s breaking new ground, but then I’ve always been slightly off the wall.
Photography means a lot to me. It always has. That is why I'm proud to be a member of the Royal Photographic Society.
