"Great photography, one of the most challenging creative disciplines in my view, it is the art of exploring and revealing the world through fresh eyes while avoiding the deadly photographic clichés. I am hoping to be stimulated and encouraged by the wealth of creativity that I know is out there just waiting to be discovered."
