As part of a group photography exhibition, I was asked to create a visual response to the project title ‘Dream Keeper’. Dreaming causes specific areas of the brain to spark ‘hot zones’ of high frequency electrical activity. Using a high-speed camera, I shot underwater explosions and then slowed the footage down to depict a very personal interpretation of the physiological brain activity that happens during the ‘dream state’. Working with the three elements of image, sound and prose, I wanted to draw the viewer in by shooting an art piece that conveyed a heightened state of brain activity and awareness. I wanted to create an ethereal, benign world, separate but ever present, infinite and mysterious - inside an entrancing realm of heavenly light and sound. The artwork was exhibited at the Process Dream Keeper Exhibition as a moving image art installation alongside a series of still images.

In a recent personal project, we set out to explore the pigment effects of acrylic paint. Using water, ink and oil, we manipulated the paint and captured the unfolding story as the liquids interacted. The result was a series of striking organic patterns and colourful cosmic landscapes.
At the forefront of contemporary fashion, beauty and still life photography, the latest issue of Schön Magazine celebrates ‘interconnectedness’ and the international cities bringing the art world together.

I recently teamed up with San Francisco-based creative agency Eleven Inc to work on a two-part project shooting both stills and moving image. Using a combination of high-speed camera equipment, jewels and seasonal ingredients, the team and I worked over two days to create the final series. Here's some behind the scenes images of the creative project coming to life...
