The foundations of my photographic art are firmly embedded in a world of colour, line, and shape. I take inspiration from vivid graphic novels of 1980s Japan, abstract film, off-beat scores, ancient history, streams of consciousness, empathy, sexuality, humanity, and solitude.
Associated texts have always helped to place my images mentally, with texts taken from my travel journals, personal observations, historical references, personal artistic interpretations, and even the occasional quotation.

Green On PurpleBarnaby Jaco Skinner / Nikon D4 / 70 - 200 f2.8 / Tianjin
Do not allow sorrow to embrace thee,
Nor an idle grief to occupy thy days,
Forsake not the book and the lovers lips and the green bank of the field,
Ere that the earth enfolden thee in it’s bosom.
