This year I am showing images selected from a number of current projects, including “…Stops Here”, “Sights and Sites” and “Wrocław”.
My personal projects tend to develop from exploratory walks in both familiar and unfamiliar places. In these moments I investigate the expected, the unexpected, the unknown and the mysterious in everyday life. This involves making choices from the profusion and confusion of things in the world. Themes emerge over time, leading to more focused investigation and exploration. Creating books and exhibition sequences, using these images, further refines and realises the work.
I’ve taken part in SYOS since 2006, and helped coordinate the event in 2013 and 2014. In the past I devised and ran the Hereford Photography Festival, and have held solo exhibitions in Hereford, Shrewsbury, Telford and Zutphen, as well as group exhibitions in many venues in Herefordshire and Shropshire. Sharing and discussing images are an important part of the creative process for me. The studio will be open between 11am and 5pm, but you’re welcome to phone to arrange a visit outside those hours.
