Festival: 2022

My work is based on a ‘snapshot’ approach: I go for walks around the Derbyshire area or visit towns/cities and when something catches my eye I will take a photograph. I am interested in contrasts, so I will often look for beautiful, natural forms but also ‘made’ forms, such as piles of junk, objects or machines on farmland and other made architectural features. I print the images in the darkroom, usually on quite a small scale. At a later date I begin arranging and grouping the photographs together, creating visual ‘poems’ with the images and establishing relationships between them.
