"This book was born out of the realisation that being too precious about art is a hindrance against creating it in the first place. When compiling this project I wanted to try and put my perfectionist nature to one side and just embrace the act of making something for its own sake. So here we are. Ubiquitous is a collection of photographs captured and edited on a smartphone over a number of years. The images have been displayed predominantly with some kind of subconscious aesthetic logic rather than in a linear fashion, although some spreads are displayed according to the approximate time or place they were taken. I guess this book reflects the “best camera is the one you have with you” sentiment as I believe that actually capturing a spontaneous moment - even if it is in the form a low resolution jpeg file - is better than it vanishing altogether . Life is a process of learning and discovery and I have found that if there is always some kind of a camera on your person, it is much easier to express how you see the world and consolidate what you find interesting about it. I have presented these photos just slightly larger than the screen of the device on which they were taken to reflect their origin and represent them for what they are – small stills from a camera which is not a camera."
