I'm a photographer/something-else-yet-unresolved working wherever I set foot. At the moment I am less interested in using photography for any artistic purposes and seek instead to further explore the descriptive qualities of the medium and it's transformative capabilities. More specifically my aim is to pass up on subject matter that most people would deem photographic by nature and instead turn my eye to subject matter that has traditionally been deemed too uninteresting to photograph, or in some cases (and preferably), ignored altogether.
