I exploring spiritual connection with nature and inner self.

I am a Fine Art photographer based in South Wales. I feel that much of photography has lost its soul. Images, when they have a soul, allow our sensitivity to engage with the subject, to create empathy with what we see. I believe that this sense of contact changes our state of mind. As such, my photography explores different levels of reality: the reality of who or what is described by the image, and the reality of experience and feeling - whether the subject’s, the viewer’s, my own. This is what we bring to the image and, once transformed, take away with us.
