Artwork Title: In My Hands
Statement: I have moved into professional photography late in life, after a full and successful career in Social Work, eventually deciding to follow my passion for still image. I studied Fine Art Photography at Kingston University in London, completing my studies with a First Class Master’s Degree in Photography. My combined artistic and social work background inspire me to capture the true essence of the subject, be that a portrait, a landscape, an object or a story… That which is hidden beneath the layer of mere appearance. In portrait photography I am driven to capture the aspirational, the hopeful and the dreamer in the subject, in the effort to blend it with the true and visible picture of the subject. I believe a photographer is a storyteller and as such I will spend time with a subject to create a portrait, to capture a landscape or to tell a story through pictures. A long career in Social Work has thought me to respect and be true to the subject. and to give it the time and commitment it commands. "In My Hands" is one of a collection of things dearest to me. The heart in the picture symbolises my "everlasting connection to all that is precious of the people I have lost, the bond, the love, the memories of laughter and struggle in the experiences we shared. The are all alive in me, as I hold your heart in my hands…"
