Artist’s statement

The ocean is for me a sanctuary, yet filled with mystery and danger. I use video to capture movement in super slow detail, and photographs to freeze single moments in minute hi-resolution to create a window into my world and a chance for the viewer to be transported to an unfamiliar place. Captured with a Canon 450 in an Ikelite water housing and a GoPro 3 camera, the work attempts to capture fine details that could normally be missed. It explores concepts such as birth, death and personal growth, but can also have many subjective interpretations.

Influencing artists: Elena Kalis, Narelle Autio
