Image description: Landscape-orientation photograph of a clear blue sky with four small, fluffy clouds beside each other just above the bottom of the image. The colour of the blue gets deeper towards the top of the photograph, meaning the shadows of the clouds are contrasted against a lighter shade of blue at the bottom of the photograph.

My photography practice is inspired by my faith in the God of the bible. God is Spirit, and thus invisible; therefore, whilst my photographs are representational in form, I exploit their qualities to communicate about what is unseen. When using photography and text concurrently, the text then acts as a foundation for the ideas and beliefs that I am drawing out of the images.
