About me

My working life has been spent as photographer and picture editor documenting the lives of the agricultural community.
Our towns and cities are utilitarian, functional and in a constant state of flux -these infrastructures are built up, torn down and reformed as an ever changing backdrop in response to the social structure of communities held within.
In contrast the perceived idyll of the countryside seems timeless and unchanging, but it too has been shaped by the needs and demands of the communities it surrounds.
As each community struggles with demographic, economic and political changes the interactions and demands on each other will become ever greater.
We see the countryside as a place of respite from the stresses of our busy lives.
It feeds our bodies and our souls, but nature is as raw and unforgiving as it is bucolic and inspiring, I try to portray both aspects in my work.

Reflections in a barn is a series of explorations through history, the lens and my emotions, to etch my mark, albeit impermanent upon a confined space that was to be my retreat during the pandemic. To explore what lies beneath, marks etched both past and present. The installation of the barn window reflects my reaction to the building and the surrounding landscape and leaves my mark and my memory of that time to occasionally dance unseen on the walls.
