My photographs are a process of re-using my own pictures. In the manipulation of the initial image and the re-photographing of it for the final image the photograph itself has become more of the subject than what is in the picture. The work is about age.

I am intrigued by the stories that these things tell and seek to capture a bit of this effect within my own work.
