Our environment, whether man-made or natural, and the stratagems we devise to control it are of particular interest to me. My interest in the environment leads me to think about our value systems; how we assign merit to things, time, and life or make judgements. I use photography to record and react to the world around me. I sometimes make connections between disparate images to create something new. Other times, I often work with a series of like images; many of these photographs lend themselves naturally to the narrative and sequential properties of the book form and much of my photography ends up in artist's books.
