This series explores people in their environments. I’ve chosen digital as a way of capturing people unnoticed. The iPad allows me to move from place to place with ease. I can become unobtrusive and therefore the subject can be themselves. I work from life and prefer it when people feel comfortable enough to move around.
I like to play with ideas of memory and time within a space.
