A series of works combining found photos, photograms constructed with a scanner, and analogue and digital photographs taken with cameras.

Perception is confused through the use of optical patterns, mirrors, holes, and the inclusion of 'real' objects alongside their photographic facsimiles.

The 'traps' referenced in the title include nets, webs, holes and sink-holes; the camera is also a ‘trap’ for capturing light.
