About the Book
A unique and natural beauty disrupted and fragmented by the equally singular and individualistic artist ink, offers up a personal self-determined boundary. A confident barrier that outwardly speaks of a yearning for isolation - to hide, to deflect, to protect; whilst also one that conversely calls out for a reveal - to be found, to be discovered, to be accepted.
This personal tension to protect and to promote is familiar to most. Leave me be. See me. Below the surface perhaps a secret fear that we are unknowable; or indeed a greater one that maybe no one wants to know.
The book records images from the photographic installation piece of the same name.

Photographer I have always been drawn towards a cross between fine art and social documentary photography. The photographic image has strong historical and cultural associations with loss and memory, and my work embraces these themes quite naturally.
