Artist's statement

Kate and I wanted to portray that in every dark place there can be a hope for the future – the child is that hope. I have been a photographer for forty years, trying, adapting to and looking forward to anything new that comes along. Portraiture is one of my favourite forms of photography, as it gives you a chance to interact with your subject on a one-to-one basis. It is always a collaboration between the photographer and the subject to achieve the best result.
