Having taken hundreds, or probably thousands, of photographs for this blog, I have come to realise that I'm always drawn to dilapidated environments. Not as a place to live in, but as something to be documented. Well before fashion was ever on my radar, I loved taking photographs of messy alleyways, piles of debris, overloaded electrical poles and old buildings. As a result of my subject preference, and quite possibly my lack of skills, I was given a B grade for my basic photography class. The lecturer then proceeded to suggest that I pursue anything else but photography.
