Portraits

My artistic practice uses photography as a central component. If the camera disappears and the person before me emerges from within themselves, I feel I have achieved my aim. To do this requires kindness, a desire for truthfulness, and the wish to capture glimpses of these aspects in another. I would like my collaborators to feel understood.

Here is a selection of portraits with some of the fascinating and unique individuals I have had the pleasure of capturing over the past few years. This is my favourite way to spend time with people.
