a lot of my brothers and sisters studied art at school and a lot of them are incredible painters. when made to choose because of conflicting timetables, i picked performance music. it’s years since i’ve played the piano and part of me wishes i had stuck with art, become proficient in darkroom film processing, picked up a camera in my teens instead of just a few years ago.
it is only after making thousands of photographs that i am realising that cameras can be my brushes and the whole world is my palette.
Art is a leap into the void, a chance to give birth to your genius and to make magic where there was no magic before.
