Welcome to Tales & Shapes


A very warm welcome to my website.

I am a scientist and a photographer, a public speaker and a storyteller, a landscape traveller and a gardener.

In my storytelling pages, I share what I can offer and the projects I am currently working on. They are many and varied, can be performance or talk oriented, for learning or entertainment. They all share a common thread: a deep wonder for the natural word, a deep questioning of the mysteries of life, a deep longing for reconnection, a search for how to live in harmony and peace with the world.

In my photography pages, I share galleries of black & white, darkroom printed photographs, as well as colour images gleaned mostly on outdoor journeys.

See below for upcoming events, and if any of this resonates with you, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Happy browsing!
