From 2008-2011, Habitat explores the architecture of zoos and museums across various areas in America and Europe, dealing specifically with faux-wildlife and the cultivated representation of nature. This project is driven by a curiosity for the photographic image and its power and ability to suspend a feeling of disbelief, creating an unclear reading of artificial and natural, two-dimensional and three-dimensional, real and imagined.
From 2008-2011, Square Inches is an intimate examination of the home, paying careful attention to structural detail, light and form. The focus is on windows, corners and doors, creating a feeling of confinement and an unclear reading of place and space.
THE NATURE OF THIS PLACE
On-going since 2011, The Nature of this Place is concerned with the artificiality and manufactured representation of nature within modern cities. Often found in 'non-spaces', these highly constructed environments can evoke a feeling of placelessness and an uncanny sense of familiarity.
PRINT AND PLACE
New work, since 2016, Print and Place investigates the spatial relations between photography, built form and photographic print. The material and sculptural properties of the print are considered as a tool for re-imagining architectural space and form. The site-specific aspect of this work, places real and represented space side by side.
Meta is a series of site-specific photographic works developed over a period of 3 weeks in April 2019 at the Holden Gallery (film room).
Islington Mill belongs to a series of three artist residencies across Manchester and Salford (from August-December 2019), developed by seven PhD students at Manchester School of Art. This series of site-specific works responds directly to the residency space, exploring concepts of folding, continuance and transformation of a built environment, via the photographic print.
