I have spent a long time trying to understand the common thread in my photographs and what drives my passion.

At first glance abandoned houses in Johannesburg, a chapel on the altiplano, monuments in varying stages of existence and sparse savannah may seem to lack synthesis. For me they have all come to reflect aspects, and in some cases a microcosm, of the politics of land and structures.

It is that which I have consciously, or not, documented over the last ten years.

Repeating photographs, using varying vintage and modern equipment, has become a core part of my exploration of sites. It is a process that serves as a vehicle to identify change and stagnation but also to go deeper into the site.
Thank you for your interest and feedback.

I welcome any memories you may have of the spaces
