I have a bad habit of hoarding my originals, tucked away in photo albums to be seldom enjoyed. It's time to release them to the world- but how do you put a price on a one of a kind, irreplicable moment in time? 

I try to put as much of myself into my photos as I do my paintings. There are few second chances with instant film, so I only close the shutter when I can see something that I believe no one else will. If my paintings are a window to my mind, my instant photos are a cheeky peek through my eyes during a specific chapter in my life.

I remember thinking one day: most of my cameras are so old that I wish they could tell stories. As I stood in the Northern Quarter, taking snaps of the walls that so boldly shout "F*ck Boris!", "Love is Love!" and "You are Enough" (among many other things), I wondered how many other opinions this viewfinder had framed in its almost 50 years of service. How many sets of eyes had it translated to film?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what story is each of these little 4" snippets of my mind trying to tell? How about the double-exposures? 

I think it's time to share those stories.
