I have always been fascinated with the idea of capturing the true essence within a photograph, the possibility of taking an element essential to life and breathing it into an aesthetic experience for the viewer. Inspiration for the imagery lies in Victorian post-mortem photographs and photographs capturing occult practice.
The ability to capture essence has always been an alluring and haunting concept. To this day there are cultures with a reasonable fear of the camera and its inherent ability to lure the soul from its resting place with promise of permanence and bind it forever in silver nitrate. Throughout my life there has been a reoccurring theme and this is emulated through the work that I do.
