What are Sight Lines?

The visual offers a connection that is pre-language. In these galleries I invite you to see the world through my camera interpretation; bering in mind that a photograph, like text, is an edited view of the world that hides as much as it reveals.  Thus the images say as much about me as they do of the places and activities they capture.

Every day lives of the ElderlyThis gallery of photographs highlights the daily lives of elderly people in Hong Kong and China. Everyday life in a neoliberal world is difficult on a fixed income.  There is very limited provision of public housing when property markets are free.  Despite this they elderly make do and get on. Sometimes this is heart-warming and sometimes it is heart-wrenching.
