Engineer, Mathematician, Itinerant street photographer, Denizen of the Dark, Dank and Derelict. I depict for you the endless cycle of dereliction, decay and renewal of Megalopolis. The artistic and technical challenge of making art out of dark and derelict buildings and back city alleys excites me. A frisson of excitement and fear runs through me as I stand inside a crumbling building in the darkness, waiting for the sun to rise and reveal the beauty which lies in the decay of these magnificent edifices which once served us so well. Soon to be demolished, discarded, forgotten, I feel the urge to capture these scenes for posterity.
