This show is about impressions. Of people as individual persons and as they live in and interact with their environment.

I am equally intrigued by human faces, and how they reflect a state of mind, an emotion, whilst to me the naked human body represents the individuality of a person in the most revealing yet condensed way. 

At the same time, the urban environment holds unmeasurable beauty for me: inherent beauty and beauty rendered by the time of day, or my own perception. 

In this show I present the moments I have captured over the past years in and around Melbourne, of people and places.
