Pleased to announce the new collaboration with the beautiful Gallery
Sophie-Maree Gallery // The Netherlands

There are two subjects that forever inspire and intrigue me, the immense lonely landscape of the desert and the ephemeral beauty of a woman.

In this series of photographs, I explore the pairing of the two.  The desert with its hot dusty roads scattered with broken down forgotten towns that are barely large enough to warrant much more than a bus stop. A place where time is lost.....
And when beauty steps in and imposes herself on this harsh canvas, I see more than her exterior beauty.  I see the layers of her fragility, sensuality and emotion come through.
In this place, there is nothing for her to hide behind.  She is exposed and vulnerable.

Which raises the question, the underlying theme in all my work,  "Can beauty survive in a world that is drifting away?"
My quest for the answer continues.....
