‘Partitions’ is a study in contrasts, collected through the process of exploring and documenting my adopted homeland in the UK.

Equally informed (but not constrained) by genres such as landscape, documentary and street photography, the images are presented in a sequence in which each photograph functions in isolation, as part of a pair, and as part of a whole. In this way, a rhythm of disparity (and also similarity) emerges: presence and absence; chaos and precision; human and nature; black and white.

While the series evolves through a personal exploration of place, no particular intention is provided to the viewer; each is left to create their own interpretation of the material.

I began this series after returning to photography following a three year hiatus. It will be completed in 2018, marking the third year of my return to the camera. The title and any accompanying text are subject to change until that time.

An abridged selection of the photographs follows below.
