“Photography by its very nature is a personal act or a personal response to something we encounter or something we place in front of us. When I reflect on this personal, my personal, I realise that some of my photographs are more personal than others. For me this personal is based on a connected reality. A reality that is based on the immediacy of the photograph that I take. A premeditated photograph in a way holds me away from this connected reality – an immediate spontaneous photograph draws me more to this reality. In this exhibition my photographs taken wholly on my iphone, iphoneography if you like, are an immediate uncalculated response to that around me. They are a diary of my life and a diary of my experience. They document and anchor my reality. They are as organic and chaotic as my daily experience. Some are very rough and ready. Without these I will only have my memory – but my memory may not be reliable – so this is why I need these. They are a personal journey and a personal memory.”
