April 2006 I was in Rome for the Fotografia Festival Internazionale and the exhibition wonder-land that I curated for the festival. This year, still in Auckland and contemplating the first New Zealand winter for me in 10 or 12 years.
My pictures explore the strange anthropology of cities. The unusual and overlooked in the human landscape.
I am asking the viewer to question the idea that photographs as documents are complete representations of subject.
I'm interested in the universality of life and the idea of parallel lives - when one thing is happening here, something else is happening over there. The democracy of non-places fascinates me, in the knowledge that inevitably nothing is as it seems.
I work and live between Auckland and Paris.
