Hi Steve, which photographers have inspired you and why? Do you have any of their images on your walls yourself? I’m interested that you have combined photography and poetry/words like Frederick Sommer. Would you agree with him that “if you really understand why you take the photograph, you don’t do it”? Thanks, Emma

Poetry, moi? No way Pedro. Photography … to explore the layers of events occurring, and stopping time to create a ‘study’ of any given moment. I empathise with the sense of Frederick Sommer’s comment but prefer his line: “You do it for the margin of the unstated”.

To record a moment of no significance, it’s the insignificance itself that is inspiring in its ability to become meaningful in a suspended state, and as such prompts a consequence (on a good day).
