He focuses on the elegant line and romantic physical form of simple plants, vast landscapes and architecture, as a way of connecting to his own, personal world. A rich world of calm and light with sensual moments of self revelation and a seductive lyricism bathed in light both concealing and revealing. His images make viewers reflect on the beauty of Nature.
