Artist's statement

Having now spent decades making photographic portraits here in my old daylight studio in Fitzroy – subjecting a whole range of people to my very quiet and direct gaze – I feel it is fitting that I occasionally subject myself to this same unerring process. And as I am now approaching the proverbial three score and ten years, it does seem that now is the appropriate time.
