I'm a landscape photographer based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. My work explores concepts of place and displacement, connection and disconnection. I'm particularly drawn to fragile, untended and often overlooked or unremarkable places and will repeatedly revisit the same locations at different times and seasons to observe temporal or transient changes. Discovering new narratives, connections and unexpected resonances I find within the familiar it's still possible to be caught unaware and cast adrift.
Walking has always been central to my life and walks I made with my grandfather form some of my earliest memories. Our way finding journeys to somewhere and nowhere, with no definite plan or itinerary, the wrong turnings, random encounters and the pauses in between still shape my life today.
