About Photographer

I am an art photographer based in Wellington, New Zealand. Through my work I seek to create tension and an opportunity for the viewer to reconcile elements that don't naturally fit together. My pictures provide much space for imagination and interpretation. I want to engage the viewer and create images that ask questions.
