“I am a British Portrait/Documentary Photographer and my practice depicts an interest in Nostalgia, Disconnection and Narrative by exploring peculiar new towns and urban areas, finding narrative within the spaces and how these locations embody the ideas and beliefs of the individuals that reside them.
Nostalgia is a key aspect of my work. It has been stated that my generation – the ‘millennials’ have an increasing interest in the past and in some senses, nostalgia distorts and falsifies our perceptions of both the present and future. We are essentially attaching ourselves to a time we may have not even experienced ourselves. I also use the Landscape for intertwining narratives is it can give me a more broad subject matter. In my “Whispering Blooms” series I found an interest in flowers. This is something wouldn’t have expected to be a part of the series initially but is now the driving narrative of the project.
I also bring these ideas over to my portrait work. Often working on location, I like the surrounding space to tell as much as a story as the individual does. Creating distorted yet familiar banal environments that become natural for the subjects.”
