This photo is part of a series of landscape images that explores both the visual and emotional aspects of the environment. For the past two years, I have made weekly visits to a lily pond near my home, in search of new ways of interpreting the space and form I encounter. For this image I used an old manual analog lens, mounted on a Lumix G2. I love working with older lenses as they slow me down and make my compositions more considered.

I work as an artist and use photography as part of my visual language. I recently completed a number of projects in South Korea, Malaysia and Indonesia which can be viewed on the websites below.
