“roOm” is the artist name that I create and show my work under.
Christchurch born and I was Wellington-based for 19 years, but I have now relocated to Turanganui-a-kiwa, (Gisborne) for the last few years. I am interested in the anonymity that photography brings. When you take a photo, people focus on the image and the camera.. not the artist behind it. I like the idea of the artist being invisible and letting the camera do the work. I love the personal vision that photography brings out, my eye sees things differently to yours and yours different to mine.
I also like trying to capture solitude and isolation in my images, travelling to remote or over-looked locations to photograph at dusk, dark or low-light. As a photographer I cant improve nature or recreate nature but I can have fun in it bringing my touch of humanity the good and the bad to my scenes, using props to talk about the world around us
