Hey All,

Lured by a Shimmer


There is a place in photography where, as image makers we hope and want to be able to hold onto what we see, what we 
experience;  this most simple of desires leads many of us to first pick up a camera. Time teaches us that all we can and will be able to create is a shimmer of a moment, however I am still lured by the same sense of wanting.
The images here are like cul-de-sacs that take us somewhere, but ultimately nowhere.  By their very nature these are 
moments that would never last, they suffer from the flow of 
impermanence. The mist will always clear,  hail melts in the warmth of a palm, and night ends when the sun rises.  This work is like the fractured narrative of a dream; they are the remnants of something we can never hold onto, but which flicker in our mind in the waking moments after sleep.


This work is dedicated Phil who loved me and supported me whilst I was making it when I was finding it hard.
