I grew up in a small village in southern England. I spent a lot of time 
  climbing trees, digging holes and playing in a cellar. At some point I had 
  an imaginary friend called 'Ash'. At thirteen I was sent to boarding school. 
  At eighteen I knew I wanted to go to art school. Four years later I earned 
  my bachelor of fine arts degree from Kingston University in London. Upon 
  graduating I was offered an opportunity to travel and teach in Chile with 
  the British Council. The decision turned out to be life changing.
  I have always seen photography as a means to both capture reality and also 

  reveal an interior dimension to the exterior world. I try to set up questions 

  in my pictures that are both allegorical and introspective. I see now clearly 

  the relationship between memory and light in what I do. Other embedded themes 

  include the nature of desire and the phenomenon of disappearance over time. 

  There can also be a certain 'darkness' to be found in my images but it is a 

  quality I am comfortable with and find beautiful. This is because for me, 

  meaning and feelings take shape and emerge not only from what is present, but 

  also from what is absent in life.
  Today I live in New York. I have a three year old son. I like any activity 
  connected with water. I try to live simply. I believe in empathy and the 

  healing power of love. I still shoot film for my personal work.
