"These Polaroids are the places and spaces I have lived over the last few years, indexes if you like, and like the writer William Faulkner in his novel Absalom Absalom they are reiterated over and over, windows, mirrors, bedrooms, gardens, landscapes. They are conversations I’ve had with these spaces and places. Because they are photographs they are also about light: the light and viewpoint can hide the flaws in the mundane and turn it into a thing of beauty, or at least a curiosity."
