I've always taken photographs, first with my parent's camera, then, from the age of 10, with my own Instamatic. Through the 70s and 80s I worked with black and white film with varying degrees of success until the digital revolution which I've embraced wholeheartedly.  It's an unpressured way of recording things that feel important, not necessarily for any reason other than the randomness of being somewhere and  looking.  It feeds back into everything in the fullness of time.
