Having spent most of my life living a stone’s throw from the coast, much of my work is informed by the dynamic places at the far edges of the land, cycles of ebb and flow and the transience of the littoral landscape.
Over the past 12 months I have increasingly used experimental camera-less techniques alongside traditional photographic processes as a way of interpreting the coastal landscape. Working with light-sensitive papers out on the beach, I expose them to the dynamic elements of wind, waves, sand and sediment, which leave their imprint, visually marking a moment in time.
I exhibit regularly in solo and group shows across the UK, and am represented by galleries in London, Scotland and NW England. I also work as a photographic tutor, offering bespoke tuition to anyone who would like to use their camera more creatively.
I have also continued to explore book arts as an alternative way of presenting my photographic work and several handcrafted Collector’s Editions will be on display during the weekend.
