Inspired by the smell of chemicals used for developing and printing coming from a cobbled together darkroom in the bathroom of my family home, my brother managed to instil in me the thrill of image capture.
For 25 years I have been taking photographs, a chronicle of the lives and tribulations of my friends and family, but also of my varied interests and travels. I started with black and white film (developing films and printing everything myself), but then moved on to slide film and hence a collection of 20,000 slides. Now its all digital!
As a research scientist I am used to analysis, interpretation and examining problems from obtuse angles. Applying these skills to photography gives me an opportunity to perhaps eye things slightly differently.
Photographs are a historical record of a moment in time viewed by the photographer. You and I may well look at the same scene, but I doubt we see the same thing. I guess that's one of the pleasures in showing one's work, the element of surprise.
