Strangeness of the Commonplace

I have been photographing the world around me for more than 40 years. I carry a camera like most people carry wallets. I have been eternally fascinated by what we tend to overlook in everyday life. The obvious will startle us but the sublime sometimes remains hidden. I try to force myself to see this aspect of life and to record it. The simple pleasure of looking at such imagery - sometimes months after the event - is exhilarating to me. As photographs, the previously invisible appear a bit strange and foreign to us. These photographs invite the viewer to imagine the narrative behind the picture. For me, this interactive storytelling is the icing on the cake. In the kingdom of species on earth, humans remain the only ones with self awareness and the ability to empathise. Imagining the story of a photograph inevitably invites the viewer to imagine themselves in that picture.

These photographs were shot on film in various cities around Europe, processed traditionally in a darkroom and were exhibited in late 2011, in Sydney, Australia.
