When I’m completely present to what's unfolding in front of me, alive to the anticipation and excitement of seeing anew, capturing fleeting moments of wonder, there is a mysterious convergence of my inner and outer worlds. Any preconceived ideas merely acting as signposts or pointers, rather than rigid constructions, discarded during this unique manifestation of life.
This way of working sometimes leads to compiling portfolios after the fact, revealing coherence and meaning whereas at the point of capture there was simply one seeing.
