It is no accident that the most beautiful buildings are positioned at crossroads and on show across multiple vantage points. They offer a cross section of the everyday life, they force a decision in people - which way will a passerby turns and how will this affect what they come across or experience. This series focused on capturing the crossroads and crumbling facades of Havana. The architecture feels like different moments in the history of the city frozen in time, coupled with its famous old American cars, life and a light that brings the colours alive. It is a fascinating melée to watch.

The crossroads gave me the perfect vantage point to capture a cross section of architecture and life. Seeing many angles at once it was fascinating to see which passers by would interact and consider what making a decision to follow a different path would do to their experience and my photograph. Photographed over a period of hours I would then go and composite the key moments into one final piece, capturing - like a piece of architecture - moments in time from my shoot. This series was exhibited as part of Vestige Cities in Paris in 2010.


Walking the streets of European cities; Venice and Saint Petersburg, I was presented with a new challenge, capturing cities from the ground close up. With dramatic facades towering above I decided to mirror the flat confrontational buildings with my work. Removing perspective and everyday life the photographs become flat and focused purely on the extraordinary architecture of the city.

This series exhibited as part of "Romantic Cities" in Paris in 2010 is a matter of architecture, colour and light and the atmosphere they together create. This is central to photography for me.

Villes Vestige - Havana, Naples

My passion for photography has been life long and I have always found inspiration in the urban landscapes. Through my practice I capture the essence of a city; its history, architecture and life. I learned to explore the cities from every angle, scaling to the top of construction sites to capture the skylines, architecture and the melee of everyday life.

It wasn't until the creation of my series shot in Havana that I became fascinated with the view point crossroads provided, the diverse crumbling building facades, vibrant life and vintage cars that could be seen at every angle create a snapshot of a city frozen in the past. The crossroads presented a way for me to capture many angles at once creating huge visual depth and hinting at the stories behind the people walking through the shot unaware of one another.

Each city has led me to discover different view points particular to its architecture and for me my photography is about finding the angle that portrays not just the visuals of the city but its personality and spark.

The large scale format lets the viewer lose themselves in the artwork; it's depth, stories and colours.
