His artwork explores redundancy and urban change. His interest is in objects, structures, buildings and the urban landscape, and in particular the increasing number of ‘non-places’ that fill our environment. Waste centres, derelict service stations, road works, car parks and abandoned factories. Beauty is found in these places of repulsion, neglect or obsolescence.
He is represented by The Photography Room, Canberra and Bluethumb.
He works for Hector Abrahams Architects, and worked as an assistant to architecture photographer Richard Glover. He was commissioned by Leichhardt Council to do a heritage photographic documentation of Parramatta Road. He also shoots events for several clients.
