The stream of the pages depends upon a personal view of how to look at pictures. I don't usually work on long projects or keep to a single style, so the book is presented more as a box of images or a shuffled deck than as a gallery exhibition. Rather than look at all the portraits together, before or after the landscapes, you are invited to consider the geometry that binds them together.



The same elements of composition that you find in a landscape you can also find in a still life or a portrait, or a nude, or a street scene. One reason for this is the influence exerted by the frame, the boundary that marks out your world as distinct from my illusion. The shapes and spaces may remain contained within the frame or they may appear to spill out into the world of the viewer.
