–I am drawn into the gratification of both the negative/positive or digital capture.

–What do you do? ⁠


I am a photographer. ⁠


–Why photography?


I am too impatient to be a painter! I am drawn into the gratification of both the negative/positive or digital capture. But then I am endlessly patient and slow, caught in a loop of returning and revisiting material. There is a desire to hold, rework and complicate the results of that initial gratification. ⁠
