When photographic processes were invented they were hailed as a mirror of reality, recording images to which truth could be ascribed. I prefer instead to subvert photographic truth by substituting a reality of my own creation, asking the viewer to move beyond merely accepting what their eyes see, and to participate in arbitration of meaning. Even something as intangible as a thought or emotion has a "landscape" within mind-space, and it is these that I visualize in my exploration of an idea. Each image is constructed without digital intervention from a scene that I have created and photographed.
