Every day I take at least one photograph of something that draws my attention and has qualities that I find appealing. These photographs are of places, buildings – always of situations affected by human activity.
The archive of photographs I have accumulated since embracing digital photography runs to many thousands, and this is very much a common contemporary condition.
From the outset of our practice we have taken photographs as a means of recording buildings, urban conditions, elements of buildings, materials, details and so on and used reference images as a way of communicating.
These photographs are evidence of my own fascinations and journey through life. I do not claim that they are great photographs; often they are taken with my mobile phone. If nothing else, they help me make sense of the world I inhabit.
