From the artist:

"I suppose most artists have a similar story, but I remember when I was around 9 years old I used to tell my mom that I am going to be an artist when I grow up. Yes, total cliché, but at least I had a sensible back up plan if the whole artist thing didn't work out - archeologist (I absolutely loved dinosaurs and used to go looking for fossils in the Karoo as a boy). So the idea of being an artist was there from a young age, but it wasn't until my late teens that I uncovered a deep passion for making, at that stage through drawing. Slowly over time, photography overrode drawing and quickly became an obsession throughout my undergraduate studies in fine arts."
