Past Photography and Stills.

Here are some examples of the type of Photography I produce. Some are purely photographs and others have been extracted from short films I have made in the past.  I am inspired by the cinema, especially Film Noir, Horror Cinema, and German Expressionist Cinema, and also by photographs that suggest an altered world eg. the work of Gregory Crewdson. The photographs act as a mere suggestion for a possible narrative, one that the viewer would be in control of.

Stroking Razor Series (Video)

These video pieces act as glimpses into an altered sense of reality. They portray my thought processes as real and integral to an average domestic envirnoment.

I am examining the adoration of and dependancy on seemingly mundane objects.

What can they signify to both the artist and viewer?
