Artist's Statement: Update

I got to listening to furniture maker, teacher and writer Peter Korn at The Hay Festival the other day. Lots to think about, and I might try and commit some of it to screen at some point. In the meantime, I would just say that I was inspired by his Artist's Statement which was, in essence: 


INTEGRITY

SIMPLICITY

&

GRACE


All that is needed really, isn't it? If I can bear that in mind when making photos in future I will be a happy photographer. No bigging up by neologisms or obscure academic language, no turning off the viewer with reference to arcane theoretical arguments. Integrity, simplicity and grace - done. If you have to ask, you won't understand.
