I first picked up a Bolex camera in 2015 while living temporarily in the desert of Morocco. I was hooked. The tactile process of working with film enables so many possibilites that escapes digital. The lenses are unique, the image glows. Being hand wound, the Bolex camera doesn’t require power or batteries and can work in extreme locations, I’ve been able to shoot in -30ºC in the Yukon territory, icy wet and windy northern Iceland, sand swept Morocco, and in the heavy humidity of North Queensland, Australia.

All 16mm film works are shot on a Bolex camera, hand processed, and hand printed from negatives to positives via contact printer or optical printer.
For private viewings please visit the studio.
