Summary: My photographic practice explores the delicate balance between presence and absence in the detail of the urban environment. My distinct approach to Street Photography takes as its subject the contemporary cityscape – its centre and its margins. My image-making in locations including Tokyo, Budapest, New York and San Francisco doesn’t concern itself with representing those cities individually or specifically but instead searches for what is resonant yet unseen within them.

My images scrutinise tensions and divisions within dynamic and definite compositional relationships. In evolving my own rigorous visual language I inhabit the space between making a picture and capturing an image. I aim to create photographs that assert a heightened visual presence.
