A Creative Retrospective Part I, Themes & Variations:
I spent some time on the weekend going through my hard drives and prints of previous projects of the last 10 years. From the time I was in art school, to when I started professionally as a photographer…and creative breaks where I travelled. It’s interesting for me to see the consistent themes in my work as times have changed. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do next artistically and professionally. And the question that kept coming to me was well what have I done so far? I was also browsing a book of Valentino’s life work titled Themes & Variations. As with fashion collections my colours and prints may have changed over the years but somewhere in there is a common thread.
Nature and sensuality. An interest in cultures and ways of life and what connects us all. Expressing emotion. These are the things I have found in all my work as a driving force, and will continue to explore.
