An emerging fine art photographer exploring themes of wilderness, folklore and escape.
My work is inspired by the memory of childhood, folklore, storytelling, and representations of fantasy in contemporary popular culture. I explore themes of wilderness and escape, driven by a need to unplug from an electronic society that increasingly pushes us away from the natural world, a way to escape from a world dominated by screens. In using the screen to craft a vision of my own escape from it, so I find the process begins all over again.
