I began working with collage in 2018. Initially the idea was to produce my own album art, but after a period of research and accelerated experimentation where I made some quick decisions as to where I should spend time I've become interested in photomontage. I'm probably drawn more to photographs than photography and am particularly interested in the work of John Baldessari, Sergei Sviatchenko, Philippe Jusforgues, Gemma Anton, Miriam Tölke, Serrah Russell and others who favour the simplicity of one or two cuts alongside a deep interrogation of the image. Not to mention the many great photographers and those who write so well about their work - Susan Sontag, John Berger to name but two.
