Seeing books in everything, i’ve decided to collect them: Narrative photographs. One day at a time.

I look for repetition, order, narrative: Anything lined up, any group of things set in a row, or a grid, or a sequence: Containers, vessels for words – envelopes, hardbacks, soft covers, slipcases, origami. All stationery; writing paper, postcards, stamps, ink pots, staplers, sellotape dispensers…

Often travelling in pursuit of books!
