One of my big interests as an artist is the use made of photography by painters. Millais often used photographs both as a record and to make compositional decisions, this is interesting to see how he painted a typical "Fancy Picture" of 1880’s "Une Grande Dame"
The camera and the artist (set) about the relationship between photographic images and those painted. I hope to use examples from my own practice where photography has been used in both photo-realistic work as well as illustration and other art-forms.

I have used a number of artists whose work I have studied and look at the way photography informed and influenced their visual expression.

As I have scanned a lot of my old work I’m well aware that photography has played and still plays a significant role for me as an artist, indeed in recent years these two practices have overlapped and are no longer distinct paths.
