"When I see an image, I see the negative space first and then I see how I can control or manipulate it before clicking the shutter. Lacking the motor skills to convey what I see via a paint brush, the camera is my way of showing how I view the world.
However I also enjoy the creative aspect of disguising how I take them whilst, in the words of Storm Thorgerson, trying to do it for real. That's the main payback for me, the moment when I see someone try to dissect a piece and wonder how it was done, then for them to just let go of that thought process to just focus on how the image makes them feel to them."
