“I can’t say that I have ever taken a conscious decision to become an artist. I’m a photographer. I started photographing when I was young. My grandfather worked as a tool maker for Hasselblad which looking back probably influenced my journey to where I am now in some part. He never really talked a lot about cameras and unfortunately, he was not enthusiastic about photography, but I remember going to the Hasselblad Christmas parties that the company organised for the staff’s children and in my case grandchildren. I also remember having a poster of the earth photographed on some NASA mission with a Hasselblad camera. I guess this led to a subconscious fondness for photography.”
